THE Solomon Islands Students Association (SISA) executive at the University of South Pacific in Fiji has agreed to stand with the students on the termination and suspension list and agreed to appeal the decision.
This was revealed by the SISA president, Anthony Maelasi according to information this paper received.
Reports reaching this paper said that an appeal letter was sent to the National Training Unit (NTU) Director stating the reasons why the executive think that the National Training Committee (NTC) should reconsider their decision and to allow students to continue with their studies this semester.
It was added, that there is no guarantee that NTC will change its decision but the students were just told to wait and see what will be the outcome.
However, this paper understood that the students concerned will be making an appeal on an individual basis when they meet with the attaché today for consultations.
It was reported that some have succeeded in their appeal and will continue and so there is no reason why the same could be done for other depending on how serious their cases were.
Meanwhile, the education attaché Samantha Teitei in an email sent to the students has encouraged those who may believe that they should pass to have their results printed and submitted for facilitation to NTC for reconsideration of the decision.
