Minister for Education, Premila Kumar reminded teachers of Baulevu High School in Kasavu to take care of the tools they received yesterday. The tools included 30 forks, 30 spades, two 185mm Circular Saw, and two 13mm hammers.

They were donated by the Korean Government and handed to the school by Ms Kumar.

She reminded teachers that the ministry would continue to check on the tools donated.

“The Government’s dream is to ensure we are able to provide tools needed for learning,” Ms Kumar said.

“The school must make sure these tools are entered into the school’s asset register so that it is record­ed.”

Principal Vishnu Deo Sharma said the tools they received would benefit the students.

“We would like to thank the Ko­rean Government through its em­bassy for such a timely donation,” Mr Sharma said.

Muaniweni College receives new computers

Students of Muaniweni College in Naitasiri now have the privilege of using new computers.

The Korean Government donated 30 computers, 40 chairs and desks, 12 science models and one head projector. Ms Kumar handed over the equipment to the school yester­day.

“This is the second time I have come to this school and the first time was three years ago. I noticed that the school needed few things to enhance the teaching environ­ment,” Ms Kumar said.

“We thank the Korean Govern­ment which has donated about $500,000 worth of equipment to be given to schools.

“We chose schools to give this equipment due to its remoteness and need of assistance. This equip­ment will assist students to pre­pare well for exams.”

Ms Kumar acknowledged the school’s ventilation in each class­room and said that it was a clear indication that the school was ready for re-opening.

School principal Sanjalesh Nand said the equipment they received would boost students morale.

Teachers urged to focus on e-learning

Ms Kumar told Sila Central High School teachers that the ministry would focus on e-learning because it was the direction to follow.

Ms Kumar said to bring about the COVID-19 protocols in schools, the ministry relied on the teachers.

“It is good to see posters about COVID-19 and the protocols around the school,”Ms Kumar said.

“The students should not be ex­pecting recess to be the same, move around without masks or to see students all at once at the canteen and to bring about these changes we are relying on you.

“There will be a lot of teaching, talking, and reasoning that you all have to answer which will make students come on board and accept these changes.”

Ms Kumar said technology has re­ally changed classroom learning.
