A new dawn is breaking for the students of Napuka Secondary School in Tunuloa, Cakaudrove, following the installation of their new solar lights.

The project was commissioned by the Prime Minister Voreqe Bainimarama, yesterday, during the third day of his tour of the Northern Division.

“This could not have been more timely, a milestone achievement and for this, we have the Government to thank for,” the Tui Tunuloa Karalo Maibuca told the Fiji Sun.

The Office of the Prime Minister’s assistance of $76,000 had benefitted 17 school quarters, the church and the boarding facilities.

School principal Suluo Draunimasi said they were expecting better exam results following the installation of the lights.

“Students get to study from as early as 4am in the mornings now because of this compared to only four hours when we used to rely on the generator,” Mr Draunimasi said.

Tunuloa villager Sirilo Vukica said this Government has been persistent in helping provide basic services to people in isolated areas such as theirs.

Mr Vukica said they are grateful for all that the Government has done in their district.

While officiating at the event, Mr Bainimarama said; “This is a timely reminder of my Government’s vision to achieve a balance between the three pillars of sustainable development namely social and economic development and the environment.”

Mr Bainimarama also commissioned another solar lighting project benefitting 13 homes at Karoko Village in Tunuloa.

The nine villages in the tikina of Tunuloa are: Kanakana, Karoko, Koroivonu, Muana, Naqaravatu, Navetau, Salia, Wailevu and Nailou.
