Students crossing the road on their way to school

The national percentage of students that returned school yesterday was 60%.

This has been confirmed by Minister for Education Premila Kumar who says this has been captured through reports from heads of schools.

In the build up to the reopening of schools, many parents have shared their concerns with Fijivillage about the safety of children especially with the confirmation that Omicron variant is spreading in the community.

Parents are also concerned about the escalation of cases and the vaccination status of other students that their children will mix with in schools.

Years 12 and 13 students are back from their two weeks break while students from Years 8 to 11 have returned to the classroom for the first time since April 20th last year.

Kindergarten students to Year 7 students start school next week.
