Classes were suspended at the Christiana High School in Manchester yesterday after two female students assaulted a female Acting Vice-Principal.

Reports are that the students physically assaulted the Vice Principal, following the devotion exercise for students on the evening shift.

Classes are expected to fully resume today.

In another incident yesterday afternoon, the police in Christiana carried out a search of some male students during which knives were confiscated and four of the students arrested and charged.

They were later granted bail.

The Education Ministry announced yesterday that it would introduce minimum safety and security standards in high schools to reduce the number of violent incidents at that level.

The Education Minister, Andrew Holness said all secondary schools would be mandated to introduce the minimum standards.

He said the Ministry would provide schools with metal detectors to conduct searches.
