The Education Minister Dr Mahendra Reddy has directed all school heads to assess the situation and use their discretion to close their schools.
However, Minister Dr Reddy says schools in the Eastern half of Viti Levu, Taveuni, Kadavu, Lomaiviti and Lau Groups are advised to remain closed until further notice.
All school managements and heads must secure their schools and ensure that all resources in schools are kept in a safe place.
Dr Reddy says managements, teachers, parents and students to take a proactive approach as TC Winston moves close to the Fiji Group.
He says students must adhere to instructions given by their teachers and parents as we prepare for the cyclone.
He says it has been seen in the past that students ignore instructions which at times lead to loss of lives.
