THE Tolai Tubuan (spirit men), accompanied by the Tolai community, danced their way to Kerevat National High School yesterday to demand for normal classes to resume.
Two Tubuans visited the school and stuck spears and planted “tegete” (special local flower) in front of the adminsistration building. The act symbolised a stop warrant, which prevents students from withdrawing from school after their petition was submitted to the Education headquarters last week.
The Tubuan is a traditional government system, which has high authority in the Tolai society.
Principal Ray Alo said yesterday in Kokopo that classes had resumed since yesterday and would be in full swing next week.
He confirmed that the eight students charged with hindering police duties had been released and were back on campus.
Students are still waiting for a response from the Education headquarters.
