“MINISTRY of Education and Human Resources Development’s (MEHRD) Deputy Permanent Secretary James Bosamata has confirmed that Cabinet had approved the repatriation of students studying in the Philippines.
“Mr Bosamata said that both Solomon Island Government and private sponsored students would be repatriated.
“Bosamata explained that after Cabinet approved the repatriation of students from the Philippines, his ministry has established a task force consisting of staff from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the Ministry of Education to facilitate the flight.
“It is very important that we have the information about the students’ addresses in the Philippines because they need to be tested before we repatriate them,” he said.
“He added they will do their best to organize the repatriation flights in a way that the country will be protected.”
