IN a bid to foster education development in the country, Prime Minister Commodore Voreqe Bainimarama visited the Gospel School for the Deaf yesterday.

In his visit, Commodore Bainimarama reassured the school that the government will look into their request to renovate the school's Harland Hostel.

Commending the PM's visit, headteacher Laisa Raiqeu said the students were grateful for his positive response to their request for assistance.

"We had requested aid or assistance to the government for the renovation of our hostel which was established in 1995," Mrs Raiqeu said.

"Harland hostel accommodates 30 of our deaf students who come from rural areas in Vanua Levu and Viti Levu."

She said it was an exciting day for students to meet the PM.
