Suva and Lami schools to reopen tomorrow

After a few days of school closure due to water disruptions caused by heavy rainfall that damaged the main water pipes, schools in the Suva and Lami area will reopen tomorrow, 2nd April, 2024.

Acting Permanent Secretary Mr Timoci Bure stated, “We’re reopening schools because water supply in the affected areas have been restored.”

He commended the Water Authority of Fiji for working tirelessly around the clock to repair the broken pipes.

“We appreciate the patience and cooperation of our stakeholders, including our parents, guardians, students, and staff during this challenging period.”

“Your understanding and support have been invaluable as we worked to resolve the water supply issue and prepare for the safe reopening of schools,” added Bure.

As schools resume normal activities, the Ministry assures parents and guardians that they are actively addressing the lost teaching and learning time.

“We’re dedicated to ensuring that students receive the support they need as they return to their usual classroom routines.”

To ensure children bring safe drinking water to school, parents and guardians are advised to provide children with water bottles filled with filtered, boiled, or purified water.

Additionally, all Heads of Schools (HOS) are instructed to advocate for access to clean drinking water in schools.
