The Education Ministry will just discharge free instruction awards to schools that meet certain necessities.
This follows inquiries by the Ballantine Memorial School Board during a Talanoa meeting with Prime Minister Voreqe Bainimarama.
The Board asked about when the Ministry will discharge the term two awards.
Instruction Assistant Permanent Secretary Timoci Bure says schools need to meet three key necessities first.
“The school needs to give the reviewed budgetary report, the Annual General Meeting minutes and the Principal needs to refresh her school roll. We will possibly discharge the award if all these are refreshed and given to the Ministry. I am working intimately with the School Principal on this and ideally discharge the award soon when this is met.”
Bure says this is to guarantee that the past award is very much used by the school.
The Education Ministry started the arrival of awards a week ago to schools that have met all the necessities.
