STUDENTS of Nawai Public School in Nadroga will not have to worry about buying stationery before the start of school next week.

The good news for the students comes after a group of Australia-based former scholars raised $4350 for exercise books and stationery for the 96 students who will attend the school this year.

Nawai Ex-Students and Friends Association secretary Salva Nadan said the group was pleased to make the donation.

"We are extremely proud to undertake this initiative in which every child of the school will have stationery in their hands for their studies commencing in 2014, including kindergarten students with art and craft facilities for a great start to the year," he said.

Former headteacher Merewalesi Mereke expressed gratitude.
