Fiji’s Prime Minister Commodore Voreqe Bainimarama reaffirmed government’s commitment to ensure all Fijians have access to education, including those living in rural and remote communities.

Speaking to villagers during the opening of a new school in Nubuyanitu, Navosa, Bainimarama commended landowners for giving their land to enable their children to have access to proper education through the provision of proper classrooms.

He also commended parents for not giving in to the hardships of life to ensure their children are educated.

“I was told during my earlier visit in 2008 that you were using the village hall as classroom for the children and despite these hardships, it demonstrates your own perseverance to ensure that your children have access to education,” said Bainimarama.

Turaga ni Koro of Nubuyanitu, Semi Nagata said they are grateful to government for their assistance in building the new school which has brought a huge relief to the children of the village.

An investment by government amounting to more than $300,000 saw the construction phase of the new school including new teacher’s quarters, water tanks and fencing.
