PRIME Minister Real Admiral Voreqe Bainimarama firmly believes if Fiji is to become a better country, then no child should be left behind in education.

Rear Admiral Bainimarama was speaking during the opening of two teachers' quarters at Saint Peter's Primary School in Korolevu.

The Prime Minister's Office funded the construction of the two new buildings.

Students from the villages of Votua, Namada, Namatakula, Vucilevu, Biausevu, Navutulevu, Votualalai, Komave, Naboutini and six surrounding farming settlements attend the school.

"I am told that 209 of the students are taking advantage of the government subsidy in free bus fare, I personally support this initiative because it supports our young people," he said.
