A burst water main left two schools in the Central Division without water this morning.
The quick response from Water Authority of Fiji has allowed students at Suva Grammar School to continue with their classes
Education permanent secretary Dr. Brij Lal has declared that Veiuto Primary School will be closed for classes today, Thursday, April 18 because there is no water in the school.
“Due to a burst in the main water pipe this morning, students of Veiuto Primary School will be sent home and we will monitor the situation,” Dr. Lal said.
“Parents and guardians are advised to make necessary arrangements to pick their children from school.”
Other schools in the division will be open for classes today and teachers are advised to closely monitor classroom cleanliness and class attendance.
