Boys boarding schools may have to close, suggests church leader


The escalation in student violence is a major crisis for the Free Wesleyan Church of Tonga, its General Secretary Rev. Dr Tevita Havea said today, and suggested that closing the rival boarding schools of ‘Atele and Toloa for ten years might be a way forward for the schools and the country.He was commenting on last week’s student attack on a house at Tofoa that has left a 22-year-man in a coma and a 15 year old with serious injuries, and 147 students, ex-students and a teacher charged with offences.
