SOME Labasa parents are concerned about the delayed distribution of bus fare vouchers to students.
Concerned grandparent Mili Coka said her high school granddaughter had filled a bus fare form early this year but was still awaiting a response from the school.
"We are now into the eighth week of the first school term and my granddaughter still hasn't received her coupons," she said.
"Right now, we are still paying for her fare to school. We are really appreciative of government's tremendous help but at the same time, we are requesting authorities responsible to look into the matter and address it accordingly."
Another parent Divilo Liga shared similar sentiments, saying she is still paying her three children's bus fares.
"I only hope the Education Ministry distributes the coupons soon so we don't have to worry about where we will get our children's bus fare from," she said.
"This government is doing a lot for the people of Fiji and for that, I am really thankful. Poor families like us are in need of assistance such as bus fare coupons to help us send our children to school."
Education Ministry permanent secretary Dr Brij Lal yesterday said parents should liaise with school heads because the coupons have been processed.
