900K renovation for training centre

Maciu Malo
Monday, November 26, 2012

ABOUT 100 students from a vocational institution in Nadi will be learning in comfort following a $900,000 refurbishment to the institution's 22-year-old training centre.

The Vivekananda Technical Centre upgrade was funded by the European Union to the tune of $F908,154.

The new facilities built at the training centre include a new computer lab, an automotive workshop for engineering students, extended kitchen and various other classrooms to cater for the growing number of students.

Training Centre principal, Swami Tadananda said the upgrades would increase interest in the school from secondary school leavers.

"Proper training facilities and resources are essential for imparting vocational training. Under the programme, the automotive workshop and catering kitchen have been upgraded. New training facilities have been added to impart training in hydroponics, agriculture, computing, poultry and apiculture," Mr Tadananda said.

"Our training centre was built mainly to cater for students affected by the decline in the sugar industry."
