Salaseini Moceiwai
Friday, February 28, 2014

ABOUT 500 students from various schools in Labasa gathered at the old courthouse building yesterday to take advantage of the first-ever roadshow initiated by the Ministry of Education.

Officials from the various sections of the ministry assisted students with information about higher education, the government loan scheme and education incentives, among others.

Divisional Education Officer Northern Satya Nand Shandil said the show was necessary to increase awareness on education for these students.

"We have decided to deliver our services right at the doorsteps of our children to inform them about the importance of education," he said.

"Officials from the various sections, including the permanent secretary of Education, Dr Brij Lal, have taken their time out to be part of the show.

"This is all part of our efforts to inform everyone, especially parents and students about education.

"When parents know the importance of education, they will encourage their children to study to the highest level of education.
