Methodist Church will ensure no child is left stranded with regards to educational needs- Ravatu

Methodist Church Secretary for Education, Waisake Ravatu.

The Methodist Church in Fiji has confirmed that they will assist any student that will come to school without lunch, bus fare and any other need that a child lacks in order to return to school.

This has been highlighted by Church Secretary for Education, Waisake Ravatu who confirms that this will apply to all their 14 primary and 17 secondary schools.

Ravatu says this is to ensure that no child is left stranded with regards to educational needs.

He says that he has sent emails requesting the heads of schools to give an update on students’ attendance so that they can work out what sort of assistance can be provided.

Ravatu says the church does not give out cash or direct assistance but assistance comes from their 58 divisions in the country.

He says each division has a church educational committee which is tasked to look into the educational needs of students in their divisions.

Ravatu says they have decided on this as these people will know what is happening on the ground with regards to the needs of people in their respective divisions.

He says this committee is also tasked to look into the needs of other children that attend other schools apart from the Methodist schools.
