Take full responsibility

PARENTS need to take full responsibility of their children rather than relying on teachers to do half of the work in schools.

Prime Minister Rear Admiral Voreqe Bainimarama said parents needed to take their responsibility seriously, especially in developing their children through education.

He said the government had been putting a lot of effort in providing the best education service for the future leaders of Fiji.

He said access to proper education had been made easy for students and parents could now provide their children with the best education Fiji could offer.

Rear Admiral Bainimarama said the vanua and the church also played a significant role in the upbringing of any child and they needed to make sure that children grew up to be smart leaders of tomorrow.

He said there were a lot of discussions about the 600 scholarships not being enough for the iTaukei students.

He urged parents to work together and provide the best care for the children, especially in spending quality time with them.
