All schools to open, except on Kadavu

Update: 2:00PM ALL schools in Fiji will be officially opened for classes on Monday, April 16 with the exception of schools on Kadavu.

All schools on Kadavu should only open at the discretion of the head teacher or school head, as assessments by disaster officials are still ongoing. 

A Government statement issued last night also advised all parents on Kadavu to use their own discretion and evaluate weather and damage conditions prior to sending their children to school. 

The Ministry of Education will also be holding meetings next week to discuss a catch-up plan for schools that were closed in light of the severe weather over the past two weeks.
