School fight

Another school fight video goes viral

The video of a school fight has surfaced on social media, this time allegedly between female students of a St Augustine school.

In the video, the students were seen shoving, slapping and punching each other, while their classmates scream in excitement.

This all took place in a hallway of the school.

The fight appears to have continued outside the school compound, as another video shows the students fighting in a savannah. However, the physical row is quelled by an adult, as the rest of the school students look on from higher ground.
