“I am confident that with their preparations and with the support from all stakeholders of education, all children will do their best. I request all parents to attend to their child’s needs and ensure that the right environment is created at home for the child to be fully engrossed in the examination process,” said Mr Reddy.

“The Government of the day, under the leadership of honorable Bainimarama has attained milestone achievements.

“The Free Education scheme has and will continue to benefit all Fijians. We want to ensure that quality education is accessible to all Fijians no matter where they are located in Fiji.

“We have implemented equality and just practices so that everyone benefits from the new educational initiatives.

“I am sure that all Year 12 children have benefitted from our initiatives from the past two years and as such have prepared well for this exam.

“We had promised the parents that we will stand with them and share their obligations of educating their children and we have taken on that pledge to the extent of removing all major financial commitments of the parents.

“We want all parents to devote their full attention to the success of their children and partner with us in our national educational drive.

“I encourage all those children who were affected by Cyclone Winston to be brave and concentrate on doing their best. Sometimes life will test us with challenges and I urge you to work through these hurdles and motivate yourselves to succeed.

“You must appreciate the sacrifices done by your parents to send you to school and let that become an inspiration for you,” he said.

“My message to all children is to prepare well for the papers and take the exams seriously. Work hard and adopt smart practices as taught by your teachers.

You all have the potential to succeed and I urge you to do your utmost best. Remember, after the exams there will be bigger decisions to be made which will be a stepping stone for lifelong prosperity.

“The Bainimarama Government will continue to provide opportunities to you to work towards your career aspirations,” said the Minister for Education, Heritage and Arts.

In addition, 17,065 students will begin their Year 7 Final exams on tomorrow while 15,717 students will begin their Year 9 Final exams on Monday, November 7.
