Nukubalavu Village, close to the hidden paradise town of Savusavu, will be having a pre-school teacher’s quarters with the Government giving $16,310.
An American couple helped establish the village’s pre-school by the foreshore in 1998.
Because of the increasing number of preschoolers a new classroom had to be built inland.
The Government gave $17,000 for the Seacology Preschool, now accommodating more than 20 children from surrounding communities.
The school’s manager, Sereana Naulu, said the number of preschool students increased through the years.
“There are 60 families and more than 400 people, including children, living in the village.”
“More than $3000 was raised to help build the preschool,” she said.
She said the village’s obligation was to educate children from an early stage as they would be our leaders in years to come.
Another benefit of the setup of the preschool is the tabu of the iqoliqoli of Nasavusavu.
Mrs Naulu said the tabu had been observed for 10 years, conserving marine life for tourists at the Cousteau Resort in Savusavu.
“Cousteau Resort has done a lot of development in the village like the footpath, bridge, community hall and church,” she said.
Nukubalavu villagers thanked the Government for its assistance and support.
