Radio & TV Tonga, Nuku’alofa, 31/01/2020

The Minister of Education and Training Hon. Siaosi Sovaleni says this year will see the ministry working together with the teachers to determine whether the lessons and syllabus being taught in schools today will still be relevant in 5 years’ time. This was part of the minister’s message to the teachers at a special prayer service this morning hosted by the ministry for all teachers of government schools in Tongatapu as they prepare for the opening of the academic year next week.

The minister also said they are looking to work together with the students’ parents and guardians to discuss the subjects their children choose to study in high school to ensure this will be a good foundation for their careers in the future.

During the special prayer service the Minister also presented gifts to 16 teachers and staffs of the Ministry of Education and Training who recently retired.

Sovaleni also presented special awards to the Primary Schools who achieved the most successful pass rate in the class 6 Entrance examination which was GPS Nuku’alofa with 27 students passing their entrance exams, GPS Haveluloto with 15 students, and GPS Fanfga-‘0-Pilolevu with 10 students.

Hundreds of teachers and staffs of the Ministry of Education and Training attended this special Prayer service this morning.
