Police: Accept results

POLICE are urging parents and guardians to accept whatever results their children achieve in their external exams.

The advice follows previous incidents in which some children took their lives as a result of pressure from within the family upon receiving their results.

With the Fiji School Leaving Certificate (FSLC) results scheduled to be released next Tuesday, police chief operations officer ACP Rusiate Tudravu said parents must learn to accept their children's academic abilities.

"We request parents to accept their children's results and go for what they achieve rather than be angry because this could lead to them taking their lives," ACP Tudravu said.

"We have recorded in the past few years incidents of students taking their lives because their parents could not accept their results.

"The FSLC results will be out next week, so we urge parents to avoid such things from happening again."

ACP Tudravu also called on children to prepare for the new school year.

"We urge children to prepare themselves rather than enjoy the new year celebrations, so they will be ready in two weeks.

"Please, be mindful that the force is ready now for the start of school and we will be out in numbers."

School starts on January 21.
