PRIME Minister Voreqe Bainimarama has raised his concerns on the way students are behaving in schools.
He said students were now abusing their rights and were using it as an excuse to disrespect their teachers.
While handing over the 99-year lease title to the Ratu Kadavulevu School (RKS) Old Boys, Mr Bainimarama pleaded with the former students to spare some time and visit the school and talk with students.
Speaking in iTaukei, Mr Bainimarama said he was alarmed with how rights was being used by students as an excuse to disrespect their teachers in schools.
He said it was a real concern that this was happening in Fiji’s society and parents must take note.
Mr Bainimarama pleaded with members of the association to visit the school when they had time and to talk with students on how they should address their teachers.
Mr Bainimarama said last week he received two disturbing cases involving students’ behaviour towards their teachers from the two prominent government-funded boarding schools.
Meanwhile, following the presentation of the lease title to the RKS Old Boys, Lodoni Investment Company chairman Isikeli Tuituku said the team would now work on fundraising for capital funds to finance the $50 million Golden Heron Project.
