 CLASSES at the Bishop Wade Technical Secondary School in the Autonomous Region of Bougainville were expected to resumed yesterday.

Classes were suspended recently following the killing of a student at Kavex village, near the school.

Police said the victim, identified as John Kikina, was a Grade 12 student at the school and was killed following a confrontation at Kavex village with a person police were still trying to identify.

The school was shut down and students sent home after fears of retaliation by the victim’s relatives.

The school board of governors met earlier this week and made an appeal to teachers and students to return to school.
