THE Education Ministry has reaffirmed its commitment to improving the infrastructure of schools.
The ministry's asset management unit director Saimoni Waibuta made the comment while officially handing over a newly-completed walkway at John Wesley College in Raiwaqa.
He said the ministry had another 30 initiatives and reforms similar to the walkway project, all aimed at bringing positive changes in education.
"We hope that part of those positive changes in education is being seen here at John Wesley College," he said.
Acting principal Mereoni Motukiliu said they spent over $21,000 to construct the walkway.
"Of this, the ministry provided $15,935 from the school improvement fund and the balance was contributed by the Parents and Teachers Association," she said. "This walkway is very important for the students because on rainy days they have to walk from the main road to their classrooms without any shelter."
She said the school of 669 students was committed to ensuring the students had the right infrastructure.
"We cater for students from Raiwaqa, Raiwai and Vatuwaqa and we are working to put in place strategies to help them succeed.
