Kadovar School Suspended Indefinitely

Schools on Kadovar Island have been suspended for an indefinite period.

Kadovar Headmaster, Bernard Fandin, confirmed this, saying other schools will be urged to accommodate the students from Kadovar Island.

Mr. Fandin says a report will be compiled to present to Education authorities as the volcanic activity is likely to continue, and the 2018 academic year is now in doubt.

Headmaster Bernard Fandin was on the mainland when the volcano erupted. He says the ongoing volcanic activity is now putting the 2018 academic year in uncertainty. There are 187 students attending Kadovar Primary School and is a level 3 school with two teaching staff.

The head of the institution says all students have been evacuated to Ruprup Island. Mr. Fandin visited Kadovar recently with members of the PNG Defense Force to get a situation report.

With the relocation of Ruprup, Biem and Kadovar progressing, the 187 students will now be transferred to schools on the mainland.

Mr Fandin hopes schools will allow his students to be enrolled.

Meanwhile, during his recent trip to Ruprup Island where Kadovar islanders were also housed, East Sepik Governor Allan Bird says any issues to do with the affected islanders will be handled by his Government.
