The Vatuvonu Adventist College will no longer be open after Term 1 because the school management insists on “only Adventist staffs.”
Fiji Seventh-Day Adventist Church General Secretary Pastor Joe Talemaitoga says the Church wants the freedom under their beliefs to do Education their way and this includes having an all Adventist staff.
According to FBC News, Pastor Talemaitoga says they have taken this principled stand to ensure the delivery of holistic Christian education through the teachers, staff and programs of the school.
He adds the Adventist ethics and principles are not able to be done or understood clearly by anyone else than those that have a clear understanding and foundation of their philosophy.
It is believed that the senior officials of the Church visited the school to inform its teaching staff of their decision to close the school on Thursday, April 18th.
