Ten retired secondary school teachers received their airline tickets from the Employment ministry yesterday for teaching assignments at the Republic of Marshall Islands.
Permanent Secretary for the ministry Salaseini Daunabuna highlighted the third batch of volunteer teachers assigned to the RMI were recruited and selected through the Fiji Volunteer Service of the National Employment Centre (NEC).
They are contracted for two years and will be deployed to four different high schools teaching Geography, History, English and Mathematics.
Of the ten, five (5) teachers are from the second batch and are returning, whereas the remaining five are new teachers.
These teachers are scheduled to depart for Marshall Islands on Friday 28 July 2017 as their new school term will begin in August 2017.
Daunabuna added the first batch of twelve (12) volunteer teachers sent in 2012 were all absorbed into the RMI education system as permanent teachers whilst only two were absorbed from the second batch of seven (7) teachers sent in 2014.
