Schools ‘Misuse Government Grant’
Minister for Education, Mahendra Reddy says some schools misusing Government grant.

Twenty per cent of school management around Fiji misused school grants given by Government, says the Minister for Education.

This was revealed by Mahendra Reddy while opening the Northern Division School Management Association at the Fiji National University Campus at Naiyaca in Labasa yesterday.

“The auditors are still continuing their auditing and the number is expected to increase,” Mr Reddy said.

“This is one of the reasons we were forming alliances with school management associations around the country. You have been given the powers under the Education Act to be the custodians of the school while the head teacher will deal with operational matters of the school.”

He understands that the school management owned the school infrastructure but the Minister said Government was willing to work closely with them to create a healthy learning environment for students.
