Minister for Education, Rosy Akbar says the Education Ministry is currently investigating and collecting concrete evidence for the case where the headteacher and Year 6 teacher of Nabau District School in Rakiraki were suspended by the ministry for allegedly opening the packaging of the 2019 Year 6 external exam paper and revising it with the students this year.

Akbar has confirmed to Legend FM News that no police complaint has been filed regarding the matter as yet. 

It is alleged that the headteacher and the class teacher opened the packaging of the eternal exam papers one week before the exam began. 

The headteacher and the Year 6 class teacher are also alleged to have answered the questions in the paper and asked all the year 6 students to cram the answers. 

The papers which the class teacher is alleged to have been revising with the students are the Mathematics paper, English essay question and some parts of the general subjects and the itaukei paper.

Legend FM was informed that a teacher who was supervising the year 6 students saw the students revising the papers and reported the matter to the ministry.
