The Government’s vision on education has been praised by parents whose children attend Magodro District School at Bukuya in the interior of Ba.

This was the message relayed to Prime Minister Voreqe Bainimarama by a parent, Josateki Bula, while the head of Government was at Bukuya for the opening of a classroom block housing a library and to officiate at the school’s cadets passing-out parade.

“Your actions bring happiness to the vanua of Magodro. The people’s aspirations have been answered today,” Mr Bula said.

“This gift from the Government to us (school library) will make sure that it is used for the good use for their career pathways.”

School manager Saiasi Nalulu said 236 students would benefit directly from the initiative.

“We thank the Government because this is a great idea – having something of this sort here on the highlands of Ba,” said Mr Nalulu.

“Students can learn about what is beyond Magodro and likewise the outside world with the full set of Britannica encyclopaedia available.”

Mr Bainimarama urged the students to make use of the resources that were now being made available to them.

“Books are the window to the world of knowledge that will open up to you if you develop a love of reading,” he said.

Mr Bainimarama shared an old saying – that information is knowledge and knowledge is power.

“Only by reading can you gain the knowledge you need to achieve anything in life. The power of the written word can help you all your life,” he said.

In the meantime, he said, the Government would do its best to relieve parents of the cost of education through measures like tuition-free schooling and the free bus fare scheme.

He thanked the Library Services of Fiji for equipping the library.
