The students of Bau Island will soon travel a shorter distance to attend school daily.

The Government has come up with a plan to build a school, called the Bau Central College at Mokani, Tailevu, to cater for the students of Bau, Lasakau, Soso, Namuka, Mokani,  Cautata, Ovea,  Vatoa and Waicoka, Naila, Dravo, Naisogovau, Maumi, Kuku and those living along Bau Road and nearby areas.

Going to school from Bau Island had its problems – the long distance was one and when it rained, students could not attend classes.

Nayavu district officer Apimeleki Buluvakaca said: “Building Bau Central College is one of many objectives of the Government.

“The students living on Bau Island always find it difficult to travel all the way to Nausori for their education. This is a four-year plan and the school should be built in the next four years,” he said.

The Bau Central College Manager Epineri Mateteilevuka said: “Since the government has started to build Building Bau Central College the children are looking forward to it and they are very excited.

“The people of Bau Island are so thankful to the Government and landowners of Mokani Village for giving the land to build the school on,” he said.

The cost of building the school is $5.6 million and will be constructed by engineers from the Republic of Fiji Military Forces (RFMF).
