Tonga tertiary students return to school as PM announces new curfew hours

Primary and high school students will continue with the radio programmes currently being delivered by the Ministry of Education and Training.

“Tertiary students have very high vaccination rate and are mature enough to follow the restrictions and advise, so they will return to school first. There is still time to vaccinate high school students and those within the 12 to 18 year olds before they can return to school,” Hu’akavameiliku said.

“Students from 5 years to 11 year olds should be vaccinated by April before they are sent back to face to face classes in schools.”
