Schools to start on time

Maciu Malo
Sunday, January 20, 2013

STUDENTS and teachers in the Western Division have been urged to report to school tomorrow and on Tuesday.

Divisional educational officer Lorima Voravora said the damage caused by Tropical Cyclone Evan should not be used as an excuse for not attending school.

After a tour with the Prime Minister Commodore Voreqe Bainimarama to affected schools in the division, Mr Voravora confirmed all classes in the west were set to resume on Tuesday.

Mr Voravora said government had been working tirelessly in trying to repair all the damage to schools while sheds and tents had also been erected as temporary classrooms.

"All teachers should report to their respective schools on Monday (tomorrow) and students should report on Tuesday," he said.

"Those in the maritime zones should have started making their way back since the school year is about to start."

Mr Voravora said about eight schools were yet to be repaired and soldiers were assisting with repairs.

He said three schools in Ba would be fully repaired by tomorrow.
