REPAIRS to school buildings damaged by Tropical Cyclone Evan are scheduled to be completed in March.

"These are the permanent rehabilitation plans for the schools that were severely affected," said West divisional education officer Lorima Voravora.

"A group of engineers from the Republic of Fiji Military Force has left for the Yasawas and they have taken with them hardware equipment that will help with the rebuilding of these education institutions," said Mr Voravora.

"The first round of work is setting up temporary classrooms for the schools before January 21. Once that is done, they will start rebuilding the schools.

"This will take another few months, so we are looking at the end of March for work to be completed."

Mr Voravora said the schools that needed rehabilitation were Bukama Primary School, Yasawa High School, Bouwaqa Primary School and Naviti District School.
