The way is now forward for the students of Ratu Luke Memorial primary and secondary schools after the commissioning of their new school facilities yesterday.

This included a library and a classroom for the primary school and three teachers’ quarters for the secondary school.

In an interview with the Tui Wainunu, Ratu Orisi Baleitavea, he said they were grateful to Government for spending more than $5 million towards the development of their district.

“We are fortunate to have a Government that has continued to serve its people and I am calling on the people to be wise come the next general election.

“We should support this Government,” Ratu Orisi said.

“This was a district which was once lacking behind all the others in terms of developments but it has advanced in such a short time because of Government’s continuous investments to Wainunu.

“The Namuavoivoi-Daria Road cost about $2.4 million which has aided us in terms of transportation for our people and goods.”

He applauded the Government for the recent developments in their primary and secondary school which would enable quality education for the children.

While officiating at the event, Mr Bainimarama said: “My Government has been relentless in investing in the education of our children, as we acknowledge and believe that an educated Fijian society contributes towards a brighter future and prosperous nation.”

The PM yesterday also opened the new Maritime Safety Authority of Fiji office in Nabouwalu, Bua.

Today, the PM will open the suspension bridge at Korotari in Labasa, open the Roadshow in Saqani, hand over a fibreglass boat and engine and commission the solar home system at Nabua Village and Nabua Primary School in Cakaudrove.

Tomorrow, he will commission the solar home system at Napuka Secondary School, Karoko Village and Vunisavisavi and then he will end his tour with the handing over of a fibreglass boat and engine at Nakobo Village. The PM returns to Suva on Friday.
