HONIARA, Solomon Islands (September 21, 2001 - Solomon Islands Broadcasting Corporation/PINA Nius Online)---The Solomon Islands College of Higher Education, SICHE, plans to reopen next month for the second semester of the academic year.

College Director Gabriel Taloikwai said he expects funding next month from the European Union to help cover operating costs.

The semester could continue until early next February as the college – hit first by the Guadalcanal-Malaita ethnic conflict and then the country's financial crisis – attempts to resume normal operations.
