Schools in North­ern and West­ern divi­sion will be closed till to­mor­row as Trop­i­cal Dis­tur­bance 15F ap­proaches Fiji while TD 14F will likely con­vert into a Trop­i­cal Cy­clone. Min­is­ter of Ed­u­ca­tion Dr Ma­hen­dra Reddy said; “The schools are closed till fur­ther no­tice and par­ents are ad­vised to keep an eye on their chil­dren es­pe­cially in the flooded ar­eas.” Dr Reddy said the stu­dents who at- tended schools yes­ter­day were sent home by the Head Teach­ers of the schools.

All schools in Navua, Si­ga­toka, Nadi, Lau­toka, Ba, Tavua and Raki­raki are closed due to flood­ing as well flood­ing along Koronivia Road has forced all schools in Koronivia to be closed. Mr Reddy said some schools would be used an evac­u­a­tion cen­tres in cases of emer­gen­cies.
