FBC News understands staff were also informed that students who are members of the Adventist Church will be relocated to Navesau Adventist College in Tailevu. Non-Adventist students will have to find their own school.

SDA Fiji Mission President Pastor Luke Narabe, confirmed to FBC News this afternoon, the school will be closed down but did not give any reason behind the decision. He referred our questions to the Church General Secretary Pastor Joe Taleimaitoga, who is yet respond.

Minister for Education Rosy Akbar, told FBC News this afternoon that she is aware of the situation.

“Tomorrow 12.30pm I have a meeting scheduled with the General Secretary so hopefully things turn out positively because at the end of the day it’s the children’s education that is at stake and if we can come to an agreement and see that the children’s studies are not affected by any decision that the church makes.”

Questions have also been sent to the Permanent Secretary for Education.

Vatuvonu Adventist College was re-opened by the government in 2011 after it closed down in 1984. Located about three hours out of Savusavu Town, the school has a roll of 178 students from Years 9 to 13, with 21 teachers.

There are 48 boarding students who come from as far as Suva, Bua, Savusavu, Taveuni, and Natewa.
