FEARS of having to close Lami High School because of its low school roll should is a thing of the past with student numbers now "normal", according to Education Ministry permanent secretary Dr Brij Lal.

Minister Filipe Bole earlier commented during a tour of public schools that Lami High School could close if the number of students enrolled for the new academic year did not improve.

At the beginning of the year, only 60 students were enrolled at the school.

However, Dr Lal confirmed yesterday the situation at Lami High had stabilised.

In an email sent to this newspaper, he stated "Lami High School is back to normal".

Mr Bole continues with his school visitation today, targeting the Western Division. He is scheduled to visit schools in Ba, Tavua and Rakiraki over the next two days.
