Generators, water supply for affected-North schools: Education

Water and electricity will be arranged for schools in the North whose supply is still to be restored to ensure classes resume from Monday 15 February.

In a statement, the Ministry of Education said that it had made arrangements with Water Authority of Fiji to cart water to affected schools and have provided generators to those still without electricity to facilitate the kids’ learning.

Classes in the other three divisions had resumed last week, except schools in the North to allow heads of schools, divisional education officers, teachers and school management to make quick fixes to damages sustained by flooding caused by Tropical Cyclone Ana.

The ministry urges parents to send their children to school when classes resume Monday, even if it means attending lessons in civilian clothing.

Minister for Education Rosy Akbar will be in the North next week to visit schools and students.
