A nation is built on the kind of school, classrooms, teachers and most importantly the kind of education that we teach our children.

India’s Minister of State for Ministry of Human Resource Development and Ministry of Water Resources, River Development and Ganga Rejuvenation Satya Pal Singh made this comment while commissioning the new teachers quarters at Rabulu Sangam School in Tavua yesterday.

Mr Singh commended the government of Fiji for their initiative in developing the schools that were affected by Tropical Cyclone Winston.

Mr Singh also reminded the teachers that it is their role to mould children to add value to society.

“I was really painful for me when I came to know that many schools like yours were damaged due to the cyclone,” he said.

“I would like to thank the Ministers and the government of Fiji for their initiative in the development of the schools and we are very happy that the government of India has also extended their help.”

“Education not only begins when they start learning in class one, we were discussing on what kind of pre-school education we must have and we need teachers who can give both the love and care that both a parent and a teacher can give.”

“The purpose of education is to create holistic development among our children and this means that our children must be physically fit and mentally fit.”

School Principal Saroj Kumar thanked the government and the Ministry of Education for their constant support towards the school and it was an experience that they will always remember.

“It was an experience for the children and teachers to have witnessed such a memorable event and this will allow the teachers to have more security in the school.”
