High school student in Tonga dies

The Vavaʻu community continues to be in mourning after another student of one of its high schools died.

Kaniva News has been reliably informed Kelekolio Fahiua, the head boy of Kelana college has died.

The details about the cause of his death were not immediately available.

The news shocked friends and hundreds of Tongans from overseas who had attended the college’s 50th anniversary celebration this week.

The head boy’s death came after two members of the Mailefihi Siuʻilikutapu College brass band group from Vavaʻu died in a crash in New Zealand last week.

The bodies of Talita Moimoi Fifita , 33, and 12-year-old Sione Taumalolo were flown back home from Auckland to Tonga yesterday.
