Temporary classrooms are being set up at Lekutu Secondary School in Bua to cater for students when the new school year starts next week.
This as Tropical Cyclone Yasa totally destroyed all nine classrooms last month.
Acting Principal, Avinendra Kumar, says they have been given nine tents to be erected as temporary classrooms.
Another 10 tents have been allocated for teachers whose quarters were damaged.
The tents are being erected by Fiji Military Forces engineers who had earlier on helped clean up the school compound.
Kumar adds, the only challenge now will be water supply for the schools as they are still receiving carted water.
However, he says they have several water tanks that can be used in case supply hasn’t been restored when school starts.
Kumar adds he is grateful for the enormous assistance they have received from UNICEF, ADF, RFMF, the Ministry of Education and various NGOs.
