The Ministry of Education, Heritage and Arts wishes to advise teachers, students and parents in the Northern Division, that all schools will open for classes from Monday 15 February, 2021.

Hon. Minister Akbar says, “Our schools in the Northern Division were damaged by the two recent cyclones, over the last few days, our team has worked tirelessly to ensure schools and classrooms are ready to welcome children back to their learning environment. We will continue to work in the interest of all Fijian children and ensure they have access to quality education”.

All schools in the Northern Division were closed last week, to allow Heads of Schools, Divisional Education Officers, Teachers and School Managements to make quick fixes to damages sustained by the flooding caused by TC Ana.

Water, electricity and road access to most parts in the Northern Division has been resorted. Some areas, might take a few more weeks to normalize.

The Ministry has made arrangements for schools in areas without access to water. The Water Authority of Fiji will cart water to the affected schools and schools without access to electricity have been provided with generators to accommodate this absence.

Hon. Minister Akbar will be in the Northern Division next week to visit schools and students. She thanks teachers, parents, school management and the community for assisting in the clean-up of schools after the floods.

Some families in the Northern Division are more affected than the others, and while we understand that rebuilding will take time, we urge parents to send their children to school. Students who may have lost their uniforms, can attend school in civilian clothing.

The Ministry will continue to invest in areas that need assistance. Heads of Schools will work with the Ministry in the coming weeks to provide a list of students that need assistance with school bags and stationeries.

The Ministry is committed at securing the future of all Fijian children.
