Tauvuca Village School in the Lau Group will get a facelift in June, thanks to Government and the Australia’s Access to Quality Education (AQAP).

The school building which consists of five classrooms is in dire need of repair.

The Ministry of Education’s Asset Monitoring Unit’s senior education officer, Emosi Cabealawa who is part of the media delegation touring the Lau Group, revealed the good news on Monday.

The delegation is led by the Commissioner Eastern, Luke Moroivalu.

“Renovation is expected to start in June,” Mr Cabealawa said.

The steel posts are rusting and the concrete posts have cracked. It is risky,” Mr Cabealawa said.

School assistant headteacher Naivauliani Vasua said repairs to the school had been long overdue.

“There have never been many changes to the school since it was built and the state it is in now is really bad,” Mr Vasua said.

He was thankful that the students would soon have a proper classroom environment to study in.

Mr Cabealawa said Government would also help the school’s water supply.

“The school is situated on the hill and the water source is situated on the lower ground. We are taking back their application for us to come back and pump the water up to the school,” Mr Cabealawa said

The delegation continues its 19-day tour of the group delivering Government assistance, free Fiji Dairy milk and Weet-Bix to schools, visiting development projects and conducting Talanoa sessions with islanders.
