The completion of a dining hall at Tagaqe District School on the coast of Nadroga has boosted the morale of students.

The dining hall has been part of a package assistance to the school including a teacher’s quarters, which have been made possible through the Office of the Prime Minister during a talanoa session in Korolevu earlier this year.

“This dining hall and a new teacher’s quarters have been very timely because it is hard for teachers to live in Sigatoka or other areas due to the distance of the school,” headteacher Ela Naqaravatu said.

“The construction of the two new blocks not only provides better dining services and residence for teachers but also is indicative of Government’s commitment towards the education of Fiji’s children.”

Ms Naqaravatu said parents, teachers and students of Tagaqe District School were grateful for the Government assistance to further empower and enhance students’ capabilities during their education years.

“Programmes such as the One Laptop Per Child (OLPC) and the opening of telecentres around the country have brought in another level of education for our children which will boost their knowledge before they move on to find suitable jobs,” Ms Naqaravatu said.

School manager Sivo Laqai said the assistance would go a long way in nurturing future leaders of Fiji.

“Government has certainly provided a level playing field and our children need to ensure that they study hard to be able to get good jobs to support their families and the nation,” Mr Laqai said.

“We are also very grateful to Prime Minister Voreqe Bainimarama for his quick action on our needs,” he said.
