The Minister for Education Rosy Akbar, is expected to meet Faith-based community leaders on Monday to discuss the school heads selection saga.

In a statement posted on the Archdiocese of Suva Facebook Page, the Catholic Archbishop Peter Loy Chong has asked its priests and prayer groups to include a special prayer for the meeting.

He also urged teachers and children to also pray for him.

Background

The meeting is understood to be about the saga between the Ministry of Education

and Catholic Church on school head appointments.

The Head of the Catholic Church in Fiji, Archbishop Loy Chong, had asked the ministry to reconsider having church members head its schools. He also requested that faith be
an element of the Open Merit Recruitment Selection System (OMRSS).

It comes after two principals from the Catholic schools were replaced by non Catholics recently.
