Nauru school for asylum seeker children to close, be turned into gym for staff

“The school for asylum seeker children inside the detention centre on Nauru is set to close.

The building the students study in – within the Regional Processing Centre 1 camp – will reportedly be converted into office space, and a gym and recreation area for detention centre staff, while the children will be sent to Nauruan schools outside the camp.

The students, aged between five and 18, are resisting the closure of their school, which is set to hold its last lessons for the current term on Friday.

They have begun a letter-writing campaign begging the government not to shut it.”
