School unveils monument to end fights


WASU Secondary School in Tewae-Siassi, Morobe, unveiled a monument signifying the end of school fights which had affected more than 1,000 students. Tewae-Siassi MP Dr Kobby Bomareo and provincial education board officials witnessed the reconciliation following a fight between students from Selepet in Kabwum and Welesi in Wasu last year after seven students were terminated by the school. Principal Lupain Philips said the students were terminated for supporting a local teacher who had issues with the school and killed a cow intended for the school’s graduation. “The seven students tried to re-enroll in 2021, but were denied by the school so they started a fight,” he said. “The teacher involved will be disciplined.” Philips said following the reconciliation, the school was forcused on academic excellence.
