The community and students of schools in Ba were delighted yesterday when Minister for Education, Heritage and Arts, Mahendra Reddy handed over exercise books, stationery packs, school bags and tents to the schools.

Mr Reddy toured the interior schools in Ba and delivered relief supplies to Raviravi Sangam Primary School, Navoli Sangam Primary School, Bulabula Sanatan Primary School, Navoli Sanatan Primary School, Votua Catholic School, Arya Kanya Pathshala, S D Kanya Pathshala, Ba Methodist College, Ba Sanatan College, Karavi Public School and Teidamu Primary School.

These schools had suffered extensive damage during Cyclone Winston and the students needed the schooling essentials to begin classes.

At Varavu Sanatan Primary school, the old building was not in any condition to accommodate schooling.

With the set-up of the UNICEF tent in this school, Varavu Sanatan Primary school can now begin classes today.

Minister Reddy has also assured the head teachers, parents and students that all the school essentials will be provided by the Ministry of Education, Heritage and Arts for quality education. He encouraged the students to work hard and not let anything deter them from pursuing their education.

Residents from the farming communities breathed a sigh of relief and were grateful for the resumption of classes.

The other schools in the interior of Ba, Tavua and Rakiraki are eagerly awaiting the stationery packs to be delivered to them. Minister Reddy will continue assisting other schools in these areas this week.
