Students at the Fiji School for the Blind in Vatuwaqa yesterday beamed with smiles as they ate inside their newly-refurbished dining hall.

The refurbishment was funded by Mobil Oil following a proposal by the Fiji Society for the Blind.

The society’s president, Shaheen Asgar, said they were grateful to Mobil for assisting them in ensuring that the students were provided the best environment in which to live and learn.

“The kids’ outdoor dining hall was not covered and screened and the roof was leaking so there was a possibility of flies and mosquitoes spreading diseases so we made a proposal to Mobil Oil to fund it,” Mr Asgar said.

“They have provided an area where kids can eat comfortably without being bitten or contracting diseases and the children have been very thankful.”

Year Eight hostel student Asenaca Divuravura said she was happy that their dining hall had been refurbished.

“I have been schooling here for the past ten years and today I am really excited that we are able to eat inside here without any flies. Before when it was open, flies usually get in and contaminate our food,” she said.

The school has a roll of 45 totally blind and partially blind students.
