Milestone for school

Mere Naleba

FIFTEEN students will be pioneers of Basden College's first Year 13.

The New Town-based school yesterday brought in their first Year 13 students for their orientation day.

School principal Mika Mudreilagi said it was a milestone achievement for the school as they had started from scratch in trying to get a classroom to cater for the school's Year 13.

"I am proud of this achievement," he said.

"We couldn't have completed this project without the help of the Diocese of Polynesia Anglican Church, our friends from Australia and the government."

Mr Mudreilagi said during the first phase of construction what had looked like an old damaged building now looked homely enough for students living in New Town and its surrounding areas to call a classroom.

The well-ventilated classroom is made out of two shipping containers put together to make a classroom.

"Seven years since the school's inception and in our seventh year we finally made a breakthrough," he said.

He was thankful to the managing director of the construction company — Hope Fiji — for designing a go-green concept in building classrooms.

"I am so thankful and grateful to the church as well as Wade Evans and the team at Hope Fiji, for working day and night to see that the students are in a classroom by week three of this new academic year," he said.

"I thank God for allowing this project to pull through; the support from the government as well has been overwhelming."

Classes proper for the Year 13 students will begin today.
