The assistance worth $19,600 will benefit students of two other schools, Vunigigia Village School and Naikeleyaga Village School in Lau.
Kabara District School manager, Jone Marau says the students will no longer have to walk to schools adding that the boat will also be used to transport children to the health centre when need arises.
