FEMIS- Fiji Education Management Information System
Message from Dr.Brij Lal, Permanent
Secretary of Education, National Heritage, Culture And Arts
"Greetings to you all.
On the 21st of February, 2013, FEMIS (Fiji Education Management Information
System) became live and marked a significant development and achievement for
MOE (Ministry of Education) in this
modern era of Information Technology (IT). This development sees the
amalgamation of the ministry’s current databases into one information portal
that is accessible to all our stakeholders.
(Fiji Education Staffing Appointments)
which contains staff information and LANA (Literacy and Numeracy Assessment)
which contains student information could only be accessed nationally through our
local intranet domain (govnet). SIMS (Schools
Information Management System) which contains school information was a
Windows-based application and available only to our central office and district
staff. With FEMIS, these three databases are now available to all our staff
anytime and anywhere in the world with a username and password.
objective in this new development is to make available to our school heads
information that will help them in their decision making and inform them in
their planning as they endeavor to provide the quality education our children
need to develop into productive citizens of Fiji tomorrow. Whereas in the past
information flow has always been from the schools up to head office, FEMIS
establishes a vital channel of information feedback to the schools.
2013 is the year
of “Step Up” for our ministry and FEMIS is a significant development in this
regard. Its success will however depend on the cooperation of all staff from
here at central office, the districts and the schools. Like every new
initiative, unless we embrace it fully and take ownership of it, it will not
realize the purpose it was intended for. I therefore call upon everyone to work
together to implement this new tool that is aimed at improving our services to
our stakeholders. In providing the quality services we continually challenge
ourselves to, our children will ultimately be the main beneficiaries.
I would also
like to take this opportunity to thank AQEP (Access To Quality Education Programme) for their assistance in funding this new
development through AusAID for the ministry. It had come at a critical time for
the ministry as we launch a multiple of new initiatives in IT that will propel
us further into the world of computer technology and educational developments."
