Quarters for teachers

Salaseini Moceiwai
Saturday, August 09, 2014

A $53,000 teacher's quarters has been opened at Ahmadhiyya Secondary School in Macuata.

Opening the quarters was permanent secretary for PSC Parmesh Chand in front of hundreds of students, parents, well-wishers and teachers on Thursday.

Mr Chand said the initiative was one that would improve the environment of the school.

"The community-operated school requested the government's intervention in the form of a teacher's quarters," Mr Chand said.

"Now that it has been completed, we are pleased that the quarters will enhance the living conditions of teachers.

"It allows better living environment for teachers and will definitely have a positive impact on the education of the students."

Meanwhile, when asked about the performance of the civil service in the North, Mr Chand said it had improved.

"Civil servants are slowly making progress. In terms of dress codes, we are now seeing smarter looking civil servants and less abuse of resources, more accountability and attendance.

"Overall, we are improving on our service delivery."
