It will be done, do not worry, said Prime Minister Voreqe Bainimarama in reply to parents request to include new classes.

Cheers erupted as excited Wainunu parents applauded the Prime Minister Voreqe Bainimarama for granting yet another request during the commissioning of the much needed infant school in the district.

The Wainunu Infant School which was commissioned by Mr Bainimarama yesterday has alleviated parents’ worry about having to send their children to boarding school at Ratu Luke Primary School for Years 1 to 3.

The Wainunu Infant School caters for the students of villages at Cogea, Wainunu, Navakasali and other nearby settlements areas. It has a roll of 15 students from Years 1 to Year 3.

The school management’s request for the school to include other classes was swiftly granted by the Prime Minister.

“It will be done, do not worry,” Mr Bainimarama.

Mr Bainimarama’s response surprised the excited parents when he said this had been addressed.

He said he had been alerted of this and therefore arrangements were made for students in the area from Years 1 to 6 to attend the infant school.

The Minister for Education, Mahendra Reddy, said the classrooms had the capacity to hold composite classes and they would look into it.

The school committee president, Inosi Masivava said parents who had younger children at the infant school and some others in higher primary level at the next boarding school, requested if they could all attend the same school since it was closer to home.

“We are very thankful for this school and now that other classes will be included here, is very much welcomed and the Government continues to address our plights,” Mr Masivava said.

While officiating at the event, Mr Bainimarama said: “Our visit is to demonstrate the seriousness of my Government’s commitment to see first hand, that the developments we had planned to undertake in your villages and communities have been successfully delivered to meet your needs.”
