Rabulu District School in Ra won Prime Minister Voreqe Bainimarama’s praise yesterday.

He praised the school management and the teachers for keeping their learning environment clean.

“‘This is one of the schools that I see the neatest and cleanest,” he says while opening the $48K classroom block.

He advised the students to keep their classrooms clean and study hard to excel in their education.

“I ask students here today to use this building well; respect it so that it may stay in good quality for many years to come.

“This building is more than a block and mortar, it is the reflection of Fiji’s faith in you. I know that if you apply yourselves, if you work hard, if you listen to your parents and teachers you will accomplish great things.” he told the students.

Headteacher Daniel Binay thanked the Prime Minister for his assistance.

“I sincerely thank the Prime Minister and his office for funding the classroom block,” he said.

“Now the children and teachers are working in a comfortable and OHS-compliant environment conducive to teaching and training.

“The grants released by the PM’s Office have brought a lot of developments around our country, specifically in the education sector.

“We will do our best to utilise the resources available to enhance our students’ academic excellence,” he said.

 

Education builds the country

Mr Bainimarama said investing in education was the best way to build up the country and sustain its economic growth.

“I’ve said it many times before, the progress my Government has made in education is my proudest achievement as Prime Minister,” he said.

“The day we eliminated the costs of school fees was the day we put every Fijian child on equal footing – because we lifted the burden of school fees from the backs of their parents. We educate our children together, as a community—parents, teachers and neighbours.

“We do that because every child who is educated makes our community and our nation stronger.”

He said in a democracy, the government and the people were one community. The project was funded by the Small Grants Scheme through the PM’s Office.

The school educates children from the villages of Kavuli, Rabulu, Balata, Yaqara, Viti Vanua, Naseyani, Draunivi, Togovere and Caboni.
