The Ministry of Education is requesting teachers to report to work today and prepare classrooms as evacuation centres in case of any flooding.
Heads of Schools are required to make necessary arrangements for schools to be ready to take in evacuees.
Minister Rosy Akbar is urging parents to be vigilant and ensure children remain indoors.
Akbar is also calling on parents to ensure children avoid playing in flooded waters as the risk of drowning is high regardless of ones ability to swim.
The Minister is calling on Fijians to follow the weather bulletin for further updates.
We are closely monitoring two tropical depressions in our waters, either of which could intensify into a cyclone.
As a precautionary measure, all schools will be closed from tomorrow. I’m urging all parents to keep their children at home and away from floodwaters.
