Sigatoka is unlikely to have a technical college.
Minister for Education Dr Mahendra Reddy says the matter is still being considered.
’’We’re getting responses for more than ten so we’re not sure about whether we can accommodate a campus in Sigatoka, As you know there were some apparent controversy created by SODELPA Party with regards to a campus in Siagtoka. So let’s see, because we’ve got more than seven now, so maybe Sigatoka will get dropped out’’.
The Social Liberal Democratic Party presented a petition signed by about 240 people from the Nadroga Province who oppose a plan to convert Nadroga Navosa High School into a technical college.
They claim they were not a part of consultations and do not agree to the plan.
However, Reddy had earlier said the Nadroga Provincial Council and other stakeholders supported the proposal because the school will provide training for young people who can go on to find employment.
