The National, Wednesday 11th January 2012

THE Keravat National High School will remain open this year while administrative discrepancies are investigated, Prime Minister Peter O’Neill said.

"The closure of the school is not an option," he said.

"Our government will not allow our young people to be denied Grades 11 and 12 education at Kerevat.

"Our government has introduced a free and subsidised education policy that must benefit all school children starting this year.

"I have directed the Minister for Education to keep the school open and have it restored to its former glory after necessary investigations are made into the management of the school’s development and rehabilitation funds."
