11:26 am on 26 August 2009

School suspensions have been lifted for seven Kelston Boys High School students who were involved in an on-field brawl with Auckland Grammar rugby players on 15 August.

A disciplinary hearing was held on Tuesday night with the disciplinary subcommittee of the board of trustees.

The board says all the boys confirmed the charges against them and expressed remorse and accepted the need for consequences from their actions.

Significant conditions have been imposed on the boys for their return to school, including community service work and undertaking an anger management course.

They have all been placed on good behaviour contracts.
