Strikes by three public sector unions in Solomon Islands have now ended, with teachers ending their wildcat action.
The strikes had been called over the government's inability to pay wages on time.
George Atkin reports.
"The strikers have decided to end the protests after reaching better understanding with the government. The return to classes today by both primary and secondary teachers ends anxiety by parents and students alike about whether three important exams will be held this year, Standard Six students nationwide will sit their secondary schools entrance exam in two days time, while Fifth Formers will sit their Solomon Island School Certificate Exam on October 7th and Third Formers will sit their Secondary Advance Exam at a later date in October.
