Chaplain plans to finish dream

SINCE its ground-breaking ceremony in 1992, the foundations of a dream that should have been the Niusawa Secondary School chapel is still standing unfinished in the school compound.

School chaplain Vivalesi Panapasa has a dream of finishing the project that started 22 years ago.

Ms Panapasa said construction had continued until 2006.

"Then everything came to a standstill and the current incomplete structure stands as it is today," she said.

"We are appealing to old scholars to reflect on the original reason behind the need for the chapel and donate what they can so that the chapel can be built.

"In the past, funds collected from old scholars were mismanaged and as the new chaplain of the school, I have a dream of finishing this chapel for the glory of God and the spiritual guidance of the students.

Ms Panapasa said the ground-breaking ceremony was carried out by former Methodist Church president Reverend Ame Tugaue.

"Niusawa Methodist School has in the past educated a lot of successful students who hold high postings in the civil service and other sectors of society.

"We appeal to these former students to think of their current brothers and sisters and donate money and time for a worthy cause.

"I have an objective of finishing this project and kind donations will greatly assist in the completion of this chapel."
