Solomon Islands USP Campus on the pipeline

By George Tausiria

Education Minister Hon. Derek Sikua today revealed that consultations a possible in-country campus for the University of the South Pacific wiould take place at the end of this month.

Details about the plan are still sketchy but Mr Sikua said Solomon Islands Government had already identified a plot for the campus.

He made the revelations today when asked about the pressing issues his department was working on.

Mr Sikua said the land identified for the USP Campus in Solomon Islands is the plot between the Telekom Recreation Facility and the Football Academy at Ranadi, east of the capital Honiara.

The Education Minister said that aside from the USP Campus issue, one of the pressing issues being handled at the moment pertains to the contents of the Teachers’ Handbook.
