The Solomon Islands National Teachers Association’s (SINTA) new General Secretary Robert Lafisi has promised to work closely with the government and other stakeholders to address the outstanding concerns of teachers in the country.
Speaking during the signatory ceremony at Rock heaven Inn, Mr Lafisi said that its time SINTA starts working together with responsible ministries to address problems teachers face.
“In the recent past, I noticed lack of proper communication and understanding between SINTA and the government.
“As a result, issues affecting teachers remain unresolved up to today.
“My leadership this term will be focusing more on working together with the government and other stakeholders to address the long standing issues of teachers,” Mr Lafisi said.
“During this term, I will make sure SINTA branches in the provinces are working.
“SINTA is an organization meant to look after teachers in the country which is a big task I know, but through working together with government and other stakeholders, we will achieve our aims.”
He thanked teachers for their understanding in facing problems while providing the vital service of educating youths of the country.
