The girls hostel at Labasa College is undergoing renovations as part of the Ministry of Education’s project to improve facilities in government schools. The ministry has allocated $300,000 to improve boarding facilities at Labasa College.

The Ministry of Works is now engaged in carrying out the necessary improvements at the three-storey hostel to provide a more convenient and a conducive environment for boarding students.

The Deputy Secretary for Primary and Secondary Education, Saimoni Waibuta, visited the school on Monday to oversee the progress of the project. The project is expected to be completed in December and should be ready when the new academic year begins in 2015.

“This upgrade at the school will ensure that we provide an environment that is of high quality and responsive to students’ needs and aspirations. This is in line with the Post 2015 agenda of the ‘Education for All’ goals that are being campaigned globally to demonstrate quality in education in a more realistic and comprehensive approach,” Mr Waibuta said.

School principal Vinod Naicker expressed his appreciation to the Government for its timely assistance to the school. He also emphasised that the current developments in the school will assist in grooming the current students to become well rounded individuals and responsible citizens of this nation.
