FIFTY schools in the country have been identified to receive assistance from the Australian High Commission's Access to Quality Education Program (AQEP).

AusAID counsellor of development assistance for Fiji and Tuvalu Joanne Choe said together with stakeholders, AQEP has prioritised 50 of the country's most disadvantaged schools to receive assistance as part of the program's phase one support.

"AQEP works closely with the Ministry of Education, school controlling authorities, school management committees, non-government organisations, faith-based organisations and education stakeholder community to make a difference for the most disadvantaged children and the most disadvantaged schools," she said.

"Education is a key pillar of Australia's aid program and we recognise that access to quality education is every child's right.

"We also believe that contributing to quality education for all is a means to achieve economic growth and improve the wellbeing of society."

She said the five-year program would cost a total of $93million.
