School closure has been extended for another two weeks, with the anticipated school reopening date now set for Tuesday, June 30th.
Now that Fiji has zero active cases of COVID-19, it is important that the Ministry use this time to continue its ongoing reevaluation of how to reopen schools across the country in a manner suited to a post-COVID society, especially for those schools requiring rehabilitation due to Tropical Cyclone Harold.
Further updates about the resumption of school will be announced by the Prime Minister Voreqe Bainimarama during the launch of the Care Fiji App.
In the interim, students should continue to utilise the supplementary learning resources made available by the Ministry, including worksheets from schools, radio programming, and video lessons on the Walesi education channel.
In addition to keeping children engaged with at-home materials, parents and guardians are urged to encourage their children to continue practicing safe hygiene and handwashing.
Young Fijians will play a vital role in ensuring the health of our country, now and for generations.
