Teachers of Drasa Avenue School in Lautoka are all psyched up to begin the first term of the new academic year on a positive note.

Head teacher, Shelvin Prasad, said teachers of Drasa Avenue School took part in a three-day programme which involved improving strategies to enhance the academic success of students from the school.

“This is one way of allowing teachers to prepare themselves for the students who will begin classes on Monday,” he said.

“At the moment we are having our ‘student free-day programme’ and we started from Tuesday, so all our teachers have turned up to school and they all prepared and geared up for 2019’s academic year.

“During the ‘students free day programme’ there are a number of activities that have been provided to help teachers feel mentally ready and prepare for the 2019 academic year.

“Activities such as how we are going to improve the performance of students academically and physically and we are looking at bringing improvements into the teachers themselves in terms of their preparations as well as their strategies to improve children and their intervention with the children.”

Mr Prasad said this year the teachers are optimistic about continuing with the success from last year.

“Last year was a successful year for the school, we had a 100 per cent pass rate in Year Eight, we had 95 per cent in Year Six and we are working out strategies so that we can maintain those results including other classes,” he said.

Mr Prasad wished all teachers and students the best in 2019.

All teachers in Fiji have been directed to start the first term on January 9.
