PORT MORESBY, Papua New Guinea (The National, Dec. 11) – Papua New Guinea police have arrested two high school students in Port Moresby in the killing of a teacher last Friday.

Port Moresby and Central Police Commander Assistant Commissioner Geoffery Vaki revealed this when addressing Grade 8 graduates, students and parents of Bavaroko Primary School yesterday.

He said the students got drunk after graduating last Friday and some of them were involved in stabbing their teacher who died as a result of the stab-wounds.

Two students have been arrested and are in police custody. He said those students’ future is now ruined.

He encouraged teachers and students not to have such parties at hotels and instead confine themselves in school grounds during the day in the presence of parents, guardians and relatives.

He said parties at hotels and clubs result in students misbehaving.

He encouraged students to set themselves good personal goals in life and work towards them.

About 200 students graduated from Grade 8, out of which 131 have been selected to continue onto Grade 9 in secondary schools in Port Moresby.
