Eighteen students of St. Thomas Aquinas College in kamwenge town council have been suspended for staging violent strike.
Students of the catholic founded school went on strike on Tuesday protesting against the harsh conditions imposed on them by the school's matron.
They accused the matron of confiscating their phones and for caning them over petty issues.
Raging with anger, the students broke into the school canteen and vandalized it.
They also attempted to break into the matrons' house with intent to beat her up, but the matron had long escaped from her house.
Edward Ahairwe, the school headmaster, says it took the intervention of police to return the school to normalcy. He adds that 18 students have been sent on a three weeks suspension.
They will return to school on July 12th with their parents.
Kiconco Tibs, the district Police commander, said this morning that the situation at the school is calm.
