Nakelo District Primary School commemorated the $140,000 makeover on Thursday morning, at the Australian High Commission handover, at the school in Nausori.
The newly-renovated school, which came as part of the Australian-funded Access to Quality Education Program (AQEP), will host 350 students to a welcoming learning environment.
Acting High Commissioner, Glenn Miles spoke of the importance of learning in comfort and safety.
“It is very encouraging to know that the 350 girls and boys at this school now have refurbished classrooms in which to pursue their studies.
“As parents, I am sure that we are all comforted to know that our children can now concentrate on their schoolwork in facilities that are safe and in good condition,” he said.
Twelve classrooms, the teacher’s quarters, the headteacher’s office, the library, the computer room and the staff room were some of the many improvements made to the school.
“We are supporting infrastructure rehabilitation in many schools all over Fiji.
“Through AQEP, the Australian government is injecting $F93 million over five years into Fiji’s education sector,” said Mr Miles.
