Annesley Methodist Infant School students yesterday shouted three cheers for Prime Minister Voreqe Bainimarama when he opened five new classrooms.

The $160,000 school building was built from funds donated by the Prime Minister’s Office.

As an ex-pupil of the school, he was happy to help when he was approached for assistance. He said he and all his siblings attended the school in Toorak, Suva.

Mr Bainimarama was accorded the full traditional welcome ceremony by the Methodist Church to express its appreciation for the new building.

In the presentation, it was said that the church recognised the Government’s effort to lift the standard of education in the country and to unite the country through its policy on equality and non-discrimination.

The school is 71 years old and it was one of the first such infant schools in Fiji. When it was first set up, it was called The Overseas Mission Girls School for classes 1 to 8.

In 1965, it changed its name to Annesley, after Susan Annesley, the mother of Reverend John Wesley, who founded the Methodist Church.
