The Arya Pratinidhi Sabha (APS) of Fiji held its educational committee meeting yesterday with focus on creating educational strategies for the country’s ‘new normal’.

With the onset of the global COVID-19 pandemic, director of APS Education, Kamlesh Arya said the education system had been greatly affected resulting in school closures for a long period of time.

“The current situation will continue to affect the education system and the learning, teaching process for a long time so this requires us to prepare educational strategies to accommodate the new scenarios,” Mr Arya said.

APS committees rallied on a new approach through encouraging external examinations results of 2020.

“The school year 2020 was abnormal to a large extent and so the normal is the old box we are so accustomed to,” he said.

“The new normal requires us to think out of the box to achieve desired outcomes.

“We are analysing our achievements of the past year and we will discuss the strategies that we will formulate for the current year.”

He is optimistic that the deliberations and dialogue session will be realistic and achievable.

He also thanked the efforts of Government towards stringent border control mechanisms and the commitments of frontline workers.

“Since the pandemic, the 42 schools around the country that are under our wings have been very active in spreading the message of social distancing, putting sanitisers around the school premises and having safety practices of not spreading the virus,” he said.

APS is looking to collectively improve the learning and teaching platforms for more than 10,000 students that it caters for.
