Kelana College head boy dies

The Vavaʻu community continued to be in mourning this afternoon 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.

Talita Moimoi Fifita , 33, and 12-year-old Sione Taumalolo’s  bodies had been flown back home from Auckland to Tonga this morning.
