THE Ministry of Education has so far disbursed a total of $44,975,409 to primary and secondary schools that qualify for the term one and two fee free grant.

It is confirmed that only one secondary school is yet to receive a second fee grant.

"I acknowledge the school heads and managements of the 731 primary and 169 secondary schools for their timely submission of audited 2013 school financial report and AGM minutes," Basundra Kumar, the acting permanent secretary of Education, said. "The final term grant is in progress to be submitted to the schools.

"The Ministry of Education's primary and secondary section will assist schools with any queries on term three grants."
