Water, electricity and road access way have been restored to most parts of the Northern Division in order for schools to begin tomorrow.

The Ministry of Education made arrangements for schools in areas without access to water. The Fiji Water Authority will cart water to the affected schools.

Schools without access to electricity were provided with generators.

Bua District School head teacher Nitya Narayan said that Republic of Fiji Military Forces personnel were present yesterday setting up the tents for students to have their classes in.

Mr Narayan said students and teachers were looking forward to resuming school.

Dibola Volitikoro of Waiqele Secondary School and Shiwagni Chand of Nadogo Central College echoed similar sentiments and said they were looking forward to begin their Year 13 classes.

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 damage sustained by floods.

Preparations were made to make sure North schools were ready for Monday. There were exceptions. Labasa Gospel Kindergarten, which had become flooded in Cyclone Ana will begin classes on Tuesday.

Minister for Education, Heritage and Arts Rosy Akbar said: “Over the past 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.”

Ms 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.
