STUDENTS of Assemblies of God Primary School in Kinoya are expected to enjoy two new extra classrooms by the end of next year.

A fundraising effort was conducted during the school's golden jubilee celebration last weekend and raised $13,000.

Eroni Vakarau, a member of the event's organising committee, said while the turnout was low, they were thankful to those who made the effort to support the fundraising.

"We were able to raise $13,000, so we hope to start work on the extension of the building next year," Mr Vakarau said.

"The student roll is increasing by the year and the classrooms are congested. We hope to provide students with proper facilities especially for classes seven and eight.

"We are trying to create an environment conducive to learning." He said the number of students attending AOG Primary School stood at 700 compared to 500 when it opened in 1962.
