Mass suspension to clean up prominent Vanuatu college

11:40 am on 1 June 2015

Vanuatu's Malapoa College has suspended 35 of its students for what it describes as misbehaving, and confiscated more than 300 mobile phones and ipads.

The students have been accused of breaking rules around alcohol and mobile phone use.

The principal of the college Reginald Garoleo says he has to safeguard the image of the school which has bred many prime ministers including the incumbent Joe Natuman.

The principal says he is determined to clean up the college, and that more students are likely to be suspended.
