Quality Tops Agenda At Workshop

Providing Fijians quality education was the key message voiced during the closing of the Institute of Education Officers workshop.

Speaking to 38 education officers at the Trans International Hotel in Nadi, the Acting Permanent Secretary for Education, Kelera Taloga, focused on the theme, ‘Collaborating to achieve quality education for change, peace and progress’.

“Certainly we need to be working together with our community and stakeholders if we are to bring quality education for change, peace and progress,” Ms Taloga said.

“Our working together has enabled our nation to achieve above 90 per cent mark in access to education. It is because we are role models to the 11,000 teachers and 200,000 students.

“We are in the 21st century and our knowledge of technology should be very good and communication should not be a problem.”

She said more effort must be in place to ensure that students were taught by quality teachers.

“Only then can we say that we are collaborating with our teachers to achieve quality education,” Ms Taloga said.

“Quality outcomes also reflect to the community the quality of schools under our charge and the quality of officers in the education offices.

“We must be setting our standards against the best countries in the world as our product; the students are not only for Fiji markets but also for markets abroad.”

All 38 officers from the four divisions were also awarded certificates.

The three-day workshop was sponsored by Access to Quality Education Programme (AQEP) under the Australian Aid.
