The results of the assessment which was undertaken by Year 4 and Year 6 students will be released by the respective Education Ministry’s.
Speaking at the launch of the report New Zealand High Commissioner Jonathan Curr acknowledged that the report is an eye-opener to improve areas in various Education systems.
“It is an excellent example of regionalism demonstrating examples of working together and how this can be applied at a national level to improve the quality of education for children.”
When approached by FBC News to question Fiji’s performance, Permanent Secretary Allison Burchell said she did not have the time to speak on the issue, however, SPC says the data will help the Ministry better assist students.
Over 40,000 students from 925 schools in 15 countries including Fiji underwent the Pacific Island Literacy and Numeracy Assessment.
