RETIRED schoolteachers who will leave for Vanuatu on a two-year assignment under the Fiji Volunteer Scheme will be farewelled today.

The teachers will be sent off by the Public Service Commission chairman Josefa Serulagilagi who will hand them their air tickets and other necessary documents before they leave the country on February 1.

PSC permanent secretary Parmesh Chand said the 11 retired schoolteachers were selected through their field of assignments and in accordance with the terms provided by the Vanuatu Government's Ministry of Education.

Fiji and Vanuatu signed a Memorandum of Agreement (MOA) on December 12, 2013 paving the way for the dispatch of specialist skilled personnel to Vanuatu under the FVS.
