Call to find proof

THE School Management Association of Fiji has urged the Ministry of Education to get to the bottom of allegations of students who allegedly cheated in last year's Fiji Seventh Form Examination (FSFE).

And only when there is proof beyond reasonable doubt of students cheating, should appropriate action be taken, said the association.

Association president Govind Singh said the association was extremely disturbed that many students had received zero marks in examination subjects.

The association, which represents the management of primary and secondary schools in the country, issued the statement in the wake of problems faced by 11 students in Labasa.

"While school managements don't condone cheating, we want the education ministry to investigate the matter fully before a final decision is made," said Mr Singh.

Education permanent secretary Dr Brij Lal when contacted last night said the association should write to him if it had any concerns to raise.
