Integration of curriculum

Shayal Devi
Friday, June 20, 2014

A SPECIAL project has started in the Western Division to integrate curriculum from special education into formal schools.

The initiative titled Western Council of Special Educators or WEST COSE, is being spearheaded by divisional education officer West Lorima Voravora.

"One of the major focuses we are having is on special education in the Western Division," he said.

"WEST COSE is a very big project for us all as we have all the special education schools in the Western Division on board for this project. This includes schools from Ra, Ba, Lautoka and Sigatoka.

"We are trying to co-ordinate and implement the government policy on the integration of special education into formal schools."

Mr Voravora said there was a need to have special education in formal schools.

"This is so that there comes a stage later on when the special education needs can also be undertaken in formal schools and only the extreme cases that cannot be addressed by formal school will be addressed by special schools. Issues like slow learners, readers or non-readers can be addressed in the formal schools."
