Keep student records

THE police are pleading with teachers on Vanua Levu to keep records of students missing school daily.

The plea follows concerns expressed by members of the public about students seen loitering in billiard and internet shops in Labasa.

Northern police commander SSP Naulumatua Lutunacaucau yesterday said it would help if teachers kept records of students' non-attendance.

"If a student misses school daily, his or her teacher can keep a record and later consult the parents," he said.

"This can really assist in determining the nature of such absenteeism. In some cases, parents send their children to school but they are not aware of the fact that their children don't reach school.

"At least, the record can help teachers and parents track down the student. However, no such reports have been brought to our attention but we will continue to monitor the situation."

SSP Lutunacaucau said the onus was on parents to ensure their children were in school during school hours.

"It's only proper for parents to carefully supervise and ensure their children are in school when they are supposed to.

"This issue was adequately solved last year in which students were called to the station and issued with warnings in front of their parents and teachers."
