Ministry of Education Permanent Secretary Dr Brij Lal is calling on students from two prominent schools involved in recent assaults to focus on their studies and the upcoming external examinations.

He said nothing good comes out of quarrels, fights and retaliation.

"Let’s come to some form of reconciliation, putting aside all differences, forgiving one another and treating each other as friends.”

"There are better things to focus on such as the external examinations which starts on the October 29 fro form seven students and on the November 5 for form six students."

Teachers have also been reminded to uphold virtues and values within their classes so to instil into students a sense of integrity, morality and responsibility.

“Teachers, it is part of your responsibility to impart values and virtues to your students not only in words but also in action."

Dr Lal is also pleading with parents to spend quality time with their children and warn them against unruly behaviours.

"Uncouth and unruly behaviors are not for students," he concluded.
