Slow Start to Schools in Central Province

There has been a slow start to the resumption of the 2018 academic year in the Central Province.

While most schools in the Kairiku Hiri District have been affected by recent floods, those in the Rigo and Abau Districts are completing their registrations.

Schools in the Kariku Hiri District, especially Goldie and Brown River Primary are yet to complete their registrations.

Goldie River has so far registered over 230 students while Brown River an estimated total of 100 students.

Goldie River Head Teacher, Sakiusa Donis said while the recent floods have prevented students from enrolment, he said classes are expected to start next Monday.

At Brown River, the enrolment is also slow, with 30-to-40 students enrolling each day.

The school is not affected by the floods. But because most students depend on food gardens, it has affected the turnout of students during the first week.

At Sogeri National High, classes have commenced, while students at the Kwikila Secondary in the Rigo District are still doing their enrolment.

EMTV News was not able to get comments from the Principal but understands, it is a boarding school but students have not yet moved into the dormitories.

Meanwhile, the Central Provincial Disaster Committee has suspended classes for schools in Mekeo village of Kairiku Hiri District, due to recent floods.
