Tonga College and Tupou College are no longer fit for the purpose. For decades their owners' incompetence have held to ransom the education of their own students and those of other secondary schools as well. ...To end this once and for all, these two social menaces should be deregistered and bring their owners ...to their senses. - Sefita Hao'uli
