Kalabu Secondary School in Nasinu accommodated three students from prominent all-boy schools in Tailevu that were damaged by Tropical Cyclone Winston.

A Year 10 student from Queen Victoria School (QVS), a Year 10 and Year 11 student from Ratu Kadavulevu School (RKS) attended classes at Kalabu Secondary School yesterday.

Kalabu Secondary School principal Michael Kant said they were expecting to accommodate nine more students from Queen Victoria School as directed by the Ministry of Education.

“We are very grateful to have these students accommodated at our school until their schools are fully restored from the cyclone damage,” he said.

“We will try our best to assist them in their school work and make sure that they are updated with things they have missed out on.”

Mr Kant said they would arrange for extra classes for the students to help prepare for their exams if needed.

“I know that these students are going through a hard time as Fiji is trying to recover from the cyclone that brought the nation to its knees but then we need to work together in making sure that our children’s education is not affected and I am glad that we have stepped in to accommodate students affected by the cyclone.

“Our doors are open to students who are affected by the cyclone but the directive will come from the Ministry of Education on which students will be accommodated at our school; we need to work together during this time,” he said.

RKS Year 11 student Ledua Lomani said he was thankful to Kalabu Secondary School for accepting them into their school.

“I have enjoyed the hospitality from teachers and students; I feel at home.

“I hope RKS will be fixed soon and we have been told that classes will resume after electricity is restored,” Ledua said.
