“But that won’t stop us from always doing our best in school.”

Ratu Navula College principal Setareki Merekula said: “The best help we can give these students is welcome them into our school to continue their studies.

“Whatever happened to their school is beyond their control and because of the nature of the situation, this is the best possible way to help them is in their study.

“This will also help students to continue with their syllables for Year 9 and Year 10 despite being away from their original school.”
