MAKIRA WOMEN CONCERNED OVER SCHOOL TRANSCRIPTS
The Makira Ulawa Women’s Council has called on the National Examination Standard Unit (NESU) to have a cheaper arrangement in accessing school transcripts.
A member of the Women’s Council, Evelyn Kahia told SIBC News it is expensive for parents from rural areas travelling to Honiara only to get transcripts for $15.00 from NESU.
She says it is more cheaper to get the transcripts from their respective schools that travelling to Honiara.
“It’s cheaper for us parents to get the transcripts from our children’s respective schools and travelling to town would be too expensive for parents.”
The concerned mother urged the Ministry of Education and Human Resources Development to consider addressing this issue through the provincial education authorities.
