The Minister for Education, Heritage and Arts,  Mahendra Reddy yesterday opened two new classrooms at Nakaikogo Sanatan Dharam School in Koronivia, Nausori.

“That is why the Prime Minister Voreqe Bainimarama-led Government has placed so much emphasis on quality education,” he said.

Mr Reddy talked on the three pillars of education which contains reforms.

 

Education review

There are changes in the review of the Education Act.

This was confirmed by Kelera Taloga, the acting Permanent Secretary for Education, Heritage and Arts.

She was also at the school.

She said this was the first review of the Education Act.

She said the review was needed because there were many reforms in the ministry that were not in the Act.

She said the reviewed Act was with the Solicitor-General’s Office.

“Once it is passed by that office, it will be used,” Ms Taloga said.

She said a lot of hard work was put into the review and she thanked those who were involved.

Ms Taloga was at the school as the Minister for Education, Mahendra Reddy opened two new classrooms.
