Request irks parents

THE submission of children's birth certificates every year to some schools in Nadogo, Macuata, has triggered frustration among parents.

Speaking on behalf of the parents during a talanoa session at the government roadshow on Thursday, Ranadi Vuni said teachers demanded the certificates from them every year.

She claimed the teachers failed to return the certificates at the end of each year.

Ms Vuni said in cases of sporting activities and other academic events, the teachers usually demanded the certificates.

She said they could not understand why the teachers always asked for the certificates when the documents were with them.

She said times were hard and they could not afford to be travelling to and from Nadogo for the certificates.

Northern education officer Satya Nand Shandil said it was the responsibility of the parents, teachers and sports team managers to keep a copy of the certificate with them all the time.
