Letters to the Editor

Dear Editor,

Re: Fighting schools reconcile 

If the principals of these schools can’t figure out how to control their students then they should all be fired and someone who can effectively deal with the students should be hired. 

Dear Editor, I wouldn't describe an inter school juvenile delinquent behaviour by angry directionless school kids as cowardice behaviour by any means.

Dear Editor, I write in response to M. Kennedy’s letter about Seti Afoa. Unlike most, Seti is a doer! He is trying to build his business running events in Samoa, while he proudly pushes Samoa as a destination.
