Nabua Primary School is looking forward to a refurbishment after being handed $80,000 by the Embassy of the Republic of Korea yesterday.

The school has been used by the Suva Korean School for 20 years to hold classes and through this relationship, the assistance was made possible.

Ambassador of the Republic of Korea to Fiji Young-kyu Park said the event yesterday was meaningful as Korea and Fiji commemorate 50 years of diplomatic relations.

“Improving education environment is one of the three principal areas of cooperation for Korea towards Fiji,” he said.

“The other two priorities are addressing climate change and strengthening health care infrastructure.”

Timely assistance

School manager Joeli Naicavacava said Nabua Primary School had a roll of more than 900 students and always stood with their policy to accept any child.

He said the school needed repairs and they were happy that when school opens 2022, the children will have modern furniture and better-looking classrooms.

“With this donation, we are going to do a makeover of the primary school during this break, and we are working hard to make the primary and secondary school look related by painting the primary school the same color as the secondary school except with different roof colors,” he said.

“Our new school management is young, and we have some highly creative ideas to help the school grow, to better our services, and maintain that consistency in the environment of teaching. And support such as this, is exactly what we need to go forward.”
