The Education Minister Hon. Siaosi Sovaleni says during the Press Conference that the Cabinet approved last week to install running taps in schools to encourage and enable students to practice hygienic lifestyle.

Sovaleni says, the Ministry continues meeting with related stakeholders discussing issues relating to the safe of the students during school hours and they’ve discuss the idea whether it’s time to take the first school break for the year as part of precaution.

When asked about the Government’s move to return the Tongan students and workers abroad the Education Minister responded they’ve contacted them and they agreed to remain at their current place during this period.

Meanwhile the USP Tonga campus has suspended its services due to the coronavirus pandemic.
