Japan has stepped up again to offer its assistance to five more schools under Government’s Adopt a School Programme.

This brings to nine the number of schools helped by Japan.

The Japanese ambassador, Masahiro Omura, and Prime Minister Voreqe Bainimarama on Friday signed documents to formalise an agreement.

Mr Bainimarama thanked Japan for the assistance.

The master of ceremony, Jone Biaukula said, Japan was providing an additional $5.24 million for the rehabilitation of five additional schools.

“This brings Japan’s total assistance under the Adopt a School Programme to $8.4m,” he said.

Yesterday five documents were signed commencing with the Contract for Lawaki District School, Namena District School, Varavu Sanatan Dharam School, Votua Catholic School and Vunibokoi District School.
