Aid for new school complex

STUDENTS attending Nakoroboya Primary School will soon have a brand new school, thanks to an aid program from the Japanese Government.

Commissioner Western Commander Joeli Cawaki said the provision of $212,500 through Japan's Grant Assistance for Grassroots Human Security Projects program would allow the school to be relocated to a more resilient area.

"One of our mitigation plans after the typhoid outbreak in Nakoroboya was to relocate the school and the village," he said.

"The Japanese Government has provided funding for the relocation of the school and as commissioner, I thank them for this assistance."

Under the Japanese Government aid program, two new classrooms, an ablution block, teachers' quarters and a water supply system will be built later this year.

The new site will address safety concerns previously faced by students who had to cross flooded creeks.
