STUDENTS of Ahmadiyya Muslim College in Narere now have a sheltered walkway to shield them from the sun and rain.

The walkway, built by the New Zealand High Commission's Head of Mission Fund, cost $13,551.

"New Zealand Government is proud to contribute towards the education sector and develop the educational and environmental opportunities for students and teachers," said NZ acting Head of Mission Mark Ramsden.

He said he was pleased the infrastructural development project would widely benefit the school.

He added environmental factors influenced students to engage better in learning and development, which led to a more robust and continuously improving community.

Mr Ramsden also revealed that this financial year, a total of $133,000 was utilised on projects that help to meet community development needs.
