Textbooks to be distributed to schools

COPIES of 55 textbooks are being printed for primary and secondary schools around the country at a cost of $820,500.

Minister Filipe Bole said these books supported the National Curriculum Framework which was deferred because of a lack of supporting resources and textbooks.

The books will be disbursed to the schools shortly. The ministry said it looked forward to yet another successful year following the launch of its annual corporate plan yesterday.

During the official opening of the ministry's roadshow at the Government Service Centre in Suva yesterday, Mr Bole said the roadshow aimed to inform the public of the questions of accessibility, affordability and equity of education.

"These questions have become extremely important of very high profile because of the advent of free education introduced for the first time in Fiji by the government this year," Mr Bole said.

The ministry's corporate plan was also launched yesterday.

Mr Bole said the plan provided the guide for the ministry to ensure its deliverables for this year were fulfilled.
