Students of Ba Provincial Free Bird Institute School now have the chance to study and learn in an environment conducive to learning.

The school is now equipped with a special study room and computer lab after it was opened on Friday by the Roko Tui Ba, Rupeni Raviyawa Kunaturaga, and other stakeholders from the Ba Provincial Council at the school ground.

Administrator Mali Tora said the new school wing would ensure that their students had the perfect environment to learn. The new wing, which took 11 months to complete, will cater for Year 12 students.

“The building was constructed by a Nadi-based company CB construction. We started planning from 2016 to 2017 then our plans materialised in 2018,” he said.

“We used aluminium to avoid the termite problem and we also have other projects like the library, staff quarters, a multipurpose court and school fans.”

While commissioning the new Vunisei wing, Mr Kunaturaga thanked the school management board for setting aside $9000 each month last year.

“The hurdle of having to struggle to plan, implement and monitor all holistic component of quality education by all stakeholders is a thing of the past, so to present students, let me tell you the opportunities available to you are almost boundless,” he said.

“We must thank the Government for its support to enable all children access quality education. For the delivery of quality education to materialise, we must have quality schools, quality teachers and quality facilities,” he said.

The construction of the new wing was worth $400,000.
