Schools need ministry's approval for activities

PRESCHOOL teachers in Macuata have been reminded that organising any activity in school warrants the approval of the school management and the Ministry of Education.

Speaking at the Early Childhood Education Teachers Update workshop organised by Save the Children Fiji in Labasa last Friday, the ministry's education officer primary, Letila Mataitoga, said it was important for teachers to notify the authorities.

"The managements are the controlling authorities in your respective schools and it's important for you to get their approvals before you organise something in school," Mrs Mataitoga said.

"If the managements say yes, you can then apply for approval to the ministry and in most cases, requests are approved because the channel of communications is followed. For excursions of those preschools attached with the ministry, the school heads are usually the ones informing us about their intentions of the trip. Regarding this, we have been receiving excursion requests from some schools.

"For the stand-alone kindergarten, I am not sure how many have requested for this trip so far. The principal education officer primary is the approving officer for this sort of activities."

Teachers also had the opportunity to learn more about the ministry's policies and strategies and they also presented update reports of their schools.

Save the Children Fiji's northern educator Premilla Devi encouraged the teachers to always keep an updated record of their workbooks.
