Renewal of contract will depend on the performance of teachers says Minister for Education Filipe Bole.

In a statement he said Fiji now has a literacy rate of 94 percent and the teachers have to make sure that it remains

During his visit to schools in Rakiraki and Vatukoula this week, Bole urged them to improve their performance in the external examinations.

Under-performing schools in Rakiraki and Vatukoula were reminded to raise their commitment and dedication to alleviate the academic achievement of their schools.

Bole said no teacher drinks grog until 3am and walks into the classroom to teach the children without a proper plan.

“Such behaviour is intolerable and leads to underperformance,” he added.

The Heads of Department in schools have now been empowered with the authority to recommend teachers transfer for non performance.

“You are the most operative staff in any school and we expect you to set examples to your teachers and conduct frequent meetings to identify alternatives for high performance in the external examinations,” said Bole.

The ministerial team has visited more than 100 schools this year to address the need to improve performance in the Fiji School Leaving Certificate and Fiji Seventh Form Examinations.

Bole added teachers need to increase the pass rate of students in the Form 6 and Form 7 external examinations.

“It is my desire to see that more students pass and if necessary, all should pass. Students should receive quality education and be thoroughly prepared for examinations, tertiary institution entrance and available vacancies,” he said.

Bole also stressed on thorough workbook preparation.

“No teacher can teach without a workbook and Heads of Department should ensure that department teachers submit their plan a week in advance.

Planning, he said is an asset in learning and divisional and district education officers are expected to make inspection on the issue in their schools.

Secondary Schools nationwide have been categorized into under performing, medium performing and high performing schools according to their academic achievements in 2011.
