EDUCATION Ministry permanent secretary Dr Brij Lal visited education officials in Cakaudrove yesterday as part of his nationwide tour ahead of the new school year.

Dr Lal told this newspaper he had visited officials on Viti Levu to advise them of the new changes, progress and the ministry's expectations this year.

"This is a visit to advise officials as we have implemented changes and we also expect positive results this year," he said.

"I am also here to brace the board of governors for government schools because they are receiving grants for the first time this year.

"As for the free education grants, all schools in the country have received theirs. These include primary schools too."

On Monday, 380 schools received their grants from the ministry as part of the second batch of distribution.

It was earlier reported the first batch of grants was distributed to 415 schools last week.

Of this number, 401 were primary schools and 14 secondary schools.

The ministry deposited $6,997,365 into the respective schools' bank accounts for the first batch of payouts.
