JOHN Wesley College students will return to school and enjoy new classroom facilities.

The development was funded by a government allocation of $59,000 for the construction of two buildings last September, a library and classroom for Form 7 students.

Principal Joji Nakaora said the school was in great need of a classroom and a library to build on the existing facilities while also catering for a growth in the student roll.

"The roll has been increasing for the past months and this school really needed to upgrade its facilities for more classrooms to facilitate the students who are coming in, especially after the phasing out of Laucala Bay Secondary School,"

Mr Nakaora said.Commissioner Central Lieutenant Colonel Laisenia Tuitubou said government assistance aims to targets key areas including the students' standard of living.

Mr Nakaoro expressed gratitude for the government assistance.

"To put in place a project such as this is very tough and I thank the government for assisting the school in time for the new school year," he said.

"This will greatly assist the parents of the children in school."

Mr Nakaora said the new 2014 free education initiative has been very helpful to parents and guarantees education for most of the children in Raiwai and Raiwaqa.
