Fiji’s Public Service Commission has rejected the submission of the Catholic Education Delegation to appoint Catholic Heads to all Catholic Primary, Secondary, and Tertiary Schools around Fiji.

The Delegation visited PSC permanent secretary Parmesh Chand yesterday and presented their submission on behalf of  Archdiocese Petero Mataca.

In his letter to Constitution Commission Chairperson Prof Yash Ghai, the director of Catholic Education Remesio Rogovakalali said their submission was to ensure that Catholic schools are headed by Head Teachers and Principals who belong to the Catholic faith, to safeguard the Catholic character of Catholic schools.

“The Permanent Secretary has categorically stated that “NO CONSULTATION will be made be in the appointments,” said Rogovakalali.

He said this rejection can lead to the eventual death of the character, culture and values of Catholic schools and Catholic Education in Fiji and Rotuma.

“It is important for us Catholics to stand up for our faith. The parents who choose Catholic schools must be assured of their rights. They must help the Parish priests and teachers build a strong bond   to keep the Catholic character alive in their schools.”

He said they have an opportunity as Catholics to make a submission to the Constitutional Review Committee and make their voices heard about the rights of the parents in the matter of education of their children.

Reverend Petero Mataca, Archbishop of Suva is suggesting that Parents and Teachers Associations of each school to make similar submissions on the issue.
