School in the Northern Division adopted by the Australian government last year are ready to accommodate students when schools open next Monday.

This was confirmed in a statement by the Australian High Commission saying that all the schools have been completed and were ready to accommodate the students when they come in next week.

“The repairs (in the Northern Division alone) costs over $400,000 and the school repairs were completed in September last year,” the statement said.

Out of the 16 schools adopted by Australia, 10 were from the Cakaudrove province in the Northern Division.

The High Commission had set aside $20 million for the school rebuilding programme in the wake of Tropical Cyclone Winston last year.

This year it plans to undertake another 18 schools. While furniture was not included for the initial 16, it will be included in their rebuilding package for the schools they will rebuild this year.

 

The schools in the North which has been rebuilt include;

Wailevu East District School

Muanivatu District School

Nasinu District School

Qalitu District School

Saqani District School

Naiviivi Primary School

Nagigi SDA Primary School

Nasavusavu District School

St. Andrews Primary School

Laucala District School
