ONE of the country’s state owned school, King George VI is yet to allow its students to move into campus after three weeks of no water.
Solomon Water has disconnected water to the school due to delay of payment from Ministry of Finance to pay the outstanding bill.
Principal Sam Fangata said, since he came out in the media a week ago, the problem has not been rectified.
Fangata said the situation has affected students from provinces, who have been accommodated with their guardians in the city.
“I understand these students from provinces are not feeling good because they want to come and board in the campus,” he said.
Fangata said, school will still operate as day schooling this week until the water is re-connected by Solomon Water.
Meanwhile, one officer from Solomon Water said, he acted on the instruction from the management to dis-connect water to the school.
He said it’s a pity to disconnect water to the school because it is owned by the state and will affect the students.
