THE Japanese government has officially handed over three new classrooms to the Lomaivuna High School management.
The school, which was established in 1972 in Naitasiri, provides education from forms 3 to 7 for about 325 students from the surrounding areas.
A statement said the school buildings were in very poor state and dangerous to be occupied under relevant regulations.

The Japanese government provided a grant of about $140,000 to cover building material and construction costs for the three classrooms with furniture to assist the school cater for all students.
