Ministry cancels workshops

Shayal Devi
Friday, February 28, 2014

WORKSHOPS planned for teachers of Yasawa-based schools have been deferred to a later date as a result of the bad weather in the Western Division.

West divisional education officer Lorima Voravora said they had taken the safety of the teachers into consideration.

"There were seven different workshops for teachers that were to be held this week but we have indefinitely deferred those," he said.

Mr Voravora and his team met with district officials and the Commissioner Western for talks on the prevailing weather condition.

"We are closely monitoring the situation we are facing and keeping an eye on the attendance from all schools. Today (Wednesday), we found out that many parents did not send their children to school and we are urging parents to conduct assessments of their own before sending children to school."
