SCHOOLchildren who attend school daily will be rewarded with gift packs and prizes as part of the government's plan to reduce absenteeism.
Yesterday, the "Vuli Roz" campaign was launched in Lautoka, a project that aims to address the issue of low attendance in schools.
Divisional Education Officer West Lorima Voravora said this project would involve schools with the lowest attendance rates.
He said attendance records given by schools indicated high rates of absenteeism despite the free education and bus fare schemes.
"This is a project to analyse the attendance of students in schools and this is a joint program initiated by the Education Ministry's Education Support Unit and Access to Quality Education Program," Mr Voravora said.
"The project will involve the identification of 10 schools per division with low attendance and will need the collaboration of divisions and districts to address the issue."
