Government to continue building safer and stronger schools

January 23, 2018 6:40 pm

Prime Minister Voreqe Bainimarama says the government will continue to be steadfast in designing and building safer and stronger schools that best serve our students.

Bainimarama was speaking at the official opening of four new classrooms fully equipped with toilets and showers, a new library, and two duplex teachers’ quarters at Naweni District School in Savusavu.

He says the new facilities have been built to a higher standard of resilience, from the very foundation to the roof, out of materials that are built to last for when the next storm strikes.

The Prime Minister adds cyclones have inflicted serious damage in the school because past leadership in this country never invested in high-quality infrastructure.

He says they built poorly constructed schools that crumbled in the face of severe weather, they failed to see the bigger picture and they failed to consider the long-term.

Bainimarama stated, his Government isn’t making those same short-sighted mistakes and as Prime Minister, he is not prepared to let any community in Fiji, remain stuck in that same vicious and traumatic cycle.
