Face-to-face classes for Year 8 to Year 13 will resume on Monday. However, the Education Ministry said in a statement that dates could be revised if the weather pattern changed.

The ministry said all schools were now open except Maramarua District School on Vanua Levu, which was still being used as an evacuation centre.

“The ministry has been informed that the weather is clearing and that we should expect fine weather.

“However, as we are still in the midst of the cyclone season, precautions must be taken as the weather could take a turn for the worse at any time.”

The ministry urged parents, guardians, teachers, heads of schools, and community members to play their part in keeping students safe.

“Parents of students with underlying conditions are strongly advised to obtain a medical report from their doctor and share it with the head of school.

“If children are unwell, please keep them home until they have recovered.

“Reopening dates for the rest of the levels will be announced at a later date.”
