Students Stay Home, Teachers Report To School Amid Water Disruptions

Schools in water-stricken areas, stemming from heavy rain and damaged pipes in Savura, will remain closed tomorrow.

However, all heads of schools and teachers in these affected areas including Naboro, Lami, Delainavesi, Samabula, Toorak, Nasese, Nabua, upper Princess Road, upper Tacirua, Vatuwaqa, Flagstaff and Suva CBD are required to report to their respective schools tomorrow to meet with the Ministry of Education Disaster Risk Reduction Team for a survey on water storage facilities. Teachers are advised to bring their own drinking water.

“The decision to extend the closure tomorrow, is due to the ongoing challenges in water supply. These challenges affect the operational capacity of schools and pose risks to the health and safety of students,” Selina Kuruleca, Permanent Secretary Education said in a statement.

“If any staff member has challenges, please communicate with your respective HOS and Divisional Officer.”
