Parents have expressed their gratitude to the Indonesians for rebuilding Queen Victoria School.

QVS Parent-Teacher Association president Alipate Ledua said: “We are happy that the Indonesian team were focused on reconstructing the school Chapel first before they moved to the school.

“I had read in the Fiji Sun edition that for the Indonesian team God came first.

“The school rebuilding has now started after they completed the Chapel and by the end of August the school should be reconstructed,” Mr Ledua said.

A mother of a student who did not want to be identified said she was very happy to see that the Indonesians had done a marvellous work on the school chapel.

“I feel grateful to them for starting the project with the school Chapel which means a lot to us and our children,” she said.

Mosese Duikono, 19, from Qamea Island, a  Year 13 QVS student, at Assemblies of God High School, recognised the work done by the Indonesians.

Mosese said he was trying to accept the challenges and new environment to keep his focus on his academic work.

“Adapting to the new system, the rules and regulations is a bit challenging for me but I get support from the teachers and fellow classmates to help me out.

“As a last year student of QVS it is very saddening to see that we will not be completing our Year 13 at our school but at a new school now. I do know I will miss QVS no matter how far I go in my life,” Mosese said.

The QVS Parent-Teacher Association annual general meeting at Fiji LDS College discussed fundraising and activities.

Mr Ledua said the funds collected from the parents were used for the students’ academic and sports events.

“Last year we had collected $85,000 and the money was used for athletics, cadets, and academic with night classes for the Year 12 and 13 students.

Mr Ledua said it is great to see the students come and meet each other during the games and other academic events.

“Our students are currently in other schools around the country and we are still not yet confirmed if the Year 12 and 13 students will be registering as QVS or their current schools to sit for the exams.

“Change in the environment is a big challenge for the students but it is great to see how they are trying to adapt to the new environment and follow the rules and regulations that are implemented at their current school.

“Once the school rebuilding is completed, we will start fresh and new. We will be accepting the new students on merit as well from next year.

“Even the existing QVS students will have to go through the merit system to get back to QVS again,” Mr Ledua said.
