Saint Mary’s Primary School in Labasa received a boost when the United States Ambassador to Fiji, Kiribati, Nauru, Tonga and Tuvalu Judith Cefkin donated books to its school library yesterday.

During her visit to the school, Ms Cefkin encouraged students to take full advantage of the education provided to them and to work towards acquiring education.

“Education is something that will be with you whole of your life. You can aspire to become what you want through education,” she said.

“Students, you have lots of choices available.”

Ms Cefkin said the books donated to the school contained a lot of information, and learning materials which would encourage students to read and learn more.

School head teacher Setefano Curuki appreciated the kind gesture from the US Government as the school needed more library books.
