School at risk of closure

THE Education Ministry has warned that Lami High School would be closed if the school roll does not improve soon.

A visit by the Education Minister Filipe Bole to the school yesterday discovered that only 60 students had enrolled in the last three days of school.

"There are only 60 students enrolled and this is absolutely disappointing, I think I will have to cancel the grant and close the school," Mr Bole said.

"Not only the students are late in enrolment but the classes have not seriously started and this is a waste of time and resources.

"I will not entertain schools and stakeholders who have such lax attitude towards education, while some schools have established their rolls and seriously begun their academic school year, some schools with the mind-set of the community need to change especially when education is now free," he added.

The minister will visit schools in Navua today.
