The Prime Minister Voreqe Bainimarama was happy yesterday when he officially opened a project he had personally committed himself to.

He opened classrooms, teachers’ quarters, new washroom facilities and a generator shed at Nasivikoso Primary School in Magodro, Ba.

“I made a personal commitment to this improvement, which cost a total of nearly $170,000, all funded by the Office of the Prime Minister under the 2014 Small Grant Scheme Project,” the PM said.

He said he was happy to see the students starting the New Year with three new classrooms and new furniture and equipment.

“When we have better facilities for students, we make it easier for them to learn. And when we have proper facilities for teachers, we make it easier for them to teach.

“The students and teachers who work so hard at this school deserve the best support we can offer.”

Miriama Kaloutakaiwai, who was transferred to the school in 2012, said they had been waiting for long to have staff quarters of their own.

“Before our temporary shelter was in the villages where we used the houses in the village.

“We had to walk all the way from Nasivikoso village to the school which is nearly 2km walk from the village,” Ms Kaloutakaiwai said.

“It was hard because we had to be in school the whole day and then walk back home in the afternoon and the village is right inside but this initiative by the Government has made it easier.”

The same sentiment was shared by Mere Seiseibusa Vakacereivalu, who teaches Year Three and Year Four.

The school has a roll of 130 students and four teachers who teach composite subjects.
