AN accident compensation fund has been set aside for students who get hurt in school.
In his 2018-2019 National Budget address, Minister for Economy Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum said the Accident Compensation Commission Fiji would cover school yard injuries.
“Families of students who get hurt in their schools will benefit from a no-fault payment scheme towards the cost of their recovery,” he said.
“It is going to paint a serious picture of which schools have serious problems of abuse of property and needs special attention and of course accidents do happen in schools.”
