Lead by example

THE Ministry of Education has called for government school heads and their board of governors to set examples for other schools to follow.

Ministry permanent secretary Dr Brij Lal made this call yesterday at a workshop on financial management for the new free education initiative by the government.

"For the first time this year, your school will be preparing audited financial reports so ensure that all financial dealings are in compliance with the defined financial regulation," Dr Lal said.

"My humble request to all of you is to survey your school and identify the areas of need.

"Map out a priority list and ensure that you create an environment in your school that is conducive to learning and to maximise the potential within the students under your care."

He said the ministry had distributed all Term One grants to ensure a smooth introduction to the 2014 academic year.

"The ministry will continue its capacity building on financial management to its staff to ensure that accountability and transparency are observed."

The government school heads and board of governors were trained and equipped by the education officers at Marela House in Suva with the needed knowledge and expertise to implement the new free education initiative in their schools.
