Warning on schools to improve results

By Nasik Swami
Saturday, February 01, 2014

EDUCATION Minister Filipe Bole is concerned at schools that underperform in external examinations.

And the minister has warned that all underperforming schools should devise strategies to improve external exam results in the Fiji School Leaving Certificate and Fiji Seventh Form Examinations.

"I am happy to say for the FSFE this year, 57 schools were high performing with 80 per cent and over, 76 schools were medium performing with 50 to 79 per cent," Mr Bole said.

"Sadly, 25 schools were under performing below 50 per cent and these schools are on a watch-list this year.

"For the FSLC, the underperforming schools have decreased from 45 to 35 last year."

Mr Bole said with education being made free, underperforming schools should make every effort to improve results with the many teaching resources and qualified teachers.

"I am appealing to all principals, teachers, parents and students to live up to the expectations of better performance in external exams."
