The Tongan community in Fiji is trying to counter growing violence among its students at the University of the South Pacific.
High school brawling has long been a concern in Tonga and the secretary of the Tongan Community Group in Fiji, Eleni Leveni Tevi, says there are links between fights involving Tongans in Suva with what happened when they were at college in Tonga.
She says her group has brought in a zero-tolerance policy to violence and will ask Tongan authorities to ensure scholarships to study in Fiji will not go to people involved in fights while they are at high school.
"So that when the child enters secondary school they already know that there is no chance of holding a scholarship or opportunity as a future leader of Tonga, if they involve themselves in school brawls."
