Update: 12:37PM EDUCATION Ministry officials in the Western Division are closely monitoring the weather as two tropical depressions affect the Fiji group.

West divisional education officer Lorima Voravora says while schools remain open at the moment, theres a possibility theyll be closed early as parts the division experience flash flooding.

We are liaising with the heads of schools in obtaining the attendance of students, he said.

Many parents have not sent their children to school because of the weather conditions.

Mr Voravora said as flood waters in Rakiraki Town rise, at least seven schools could be affected. He said schools in the Yasawas and Mamanucas remain open for the time being.
