Science Lab Activities for Kids 2FIJI does not appear to have any strategic focus or plan to prioritise the study of the sciences in secondary schools; especially at the senior secondary school levels where career choices are definitely being made.

I note that only about 5 per cent of students take physics at Years 12 and 13 (forms six and seven). This will have serious repercussions for our nation There appears to be no national needs analysis or any concerted encouragement for the teaching of the sciences in secondary schools.
