New kindy

PRESCHOOLERS of St Ann's Kindergarten can now learn in comfort after a group of good Samaritans gave them a new classroom this week.

The students had attended classes in their teacher's house over the past seven years.

Teacher Ana Tukana said the new building would bring bigger and better changes for her 19 students.

"We are blessed and I thank God for bringing into our lives people from America who built this kindy and gave us learning material," Ms Tukana said.

"The group — Fiji Kinde Project — has saved us a lot of money.

"We started fundraising and I used to do it on my own and there were times when I lacked support.

"I will be forever grateful to this group for giving us a learning environment that will boost the students' academic performance."

Fiji Kinde Project founder David Cooper said they spent about $2500 on the kindergarten.

"We are overjoyed that Vunikura has finally got a building to house all the learning material that will help teach the children.

"Fiji Kinde Project must recognise the years of humble service Ana Tukana has given to the children of Vunikura Village," he said.
