To avoid future clashes among the students friendship associations must be mooted and encourage students of various schools to take part in some activities in a year to understand each other. Today's youths are tomorrow's leaders.

Why do we never see news that gateway college and the British school colombo have been at it, or Lyceum and some other international school. The answer is probably that there is no old boys associations to stir things up at these school. Old boys associations are mini mafias and should be banned.

The 'ayiyas' and 'mallis' fighting. The 'maamas' and 'nandhas' will worry now. Because the boys will get delayed to enter 'free' uni's where they meet the 'akkis' and 'nangis' from sister schools and continue this battle at lipton circus. Next they will 'demand' for jobs because they are qualified when we get much more talented people from abroad. And they will continue the 'struggle' until the cows come home.

These students must be severely warned and suspended and any post they may hold in school should be removed with immediate effect. they must be used as an example to future students who think they are living like a movie start.its is pathetic to see the moral and up bringing of these kids.
