School heads to decide

Salaseini Moceiwai
Thursday, February 27, 2014

SCHOOLS in the North will remain open depending on the weather conditions.

Divisional education officer Northern Satya Nand Shandil said the Education Ministry had given the discretion to school heads and principals to decide for their students.

"Right now, we have not received any report of a school that has been closed as a result of the adverse weather," he said.

"We are, however, monitoring the situation and calling on parents to play an active role in deciding for their children.

"Some of the children live in flood-prone areas and some have to cross bridges and Irish crossings. It's the responsibility of the parents to ensure their children's safety."

Mr Shandil said it was entirely up to the parents to decide whether to send their children to school today.

"If the weather continues to be unfavourable today, it's only proper for children to stay at home and not take risks."
