THE Taveuni Rotary Club carried out $612,000 worth of projects on the island last year.

Club executive officer Geoff Amos said their focus continued to lie in the area of education and health.

Mr Amos said with the assistance of overseas Rotary clubs they managed to construct eight new pre-schools and assisted six others with refurbishments, consumable and pre-teacher training courses.

"In access of $400,000 of rotary and overseas supporters' funds have been invested in preschools and a further $40,000 in preschool teacher training," he said.

"With the current project that we have the Niusawa and Bucalevu secondary schools fundraising will continue as per our efforts in providing a tablet for individual students.

"The project has a dream of providing each student at Niusawa and Bucalevu with an Apple tablet each," he said.

Mr Amos said their fundraising for the tablets would continue this year.
