SCHOOLS will be better prepared for natural disasters following the Ministry of Education's endorsement of the new Education in Emergencies (EiE) and School Safety Policy.

Designed by the ministry in conjunction with Save the Children Fiji and UNICEF, the policy identifies the roles and responsibilities of all in the education hierarchy in times of emergency.

"What this means is there is clarity for parents, for teachers and for students as well so they know what their role is and what role the ministry will play in terms of ensuring their safety in times of disaster," Save the Children's Education in Emergencies consultant Jack French said.
