Students sleep in discomfort

Salaseini Moceiwai
Friday, April 25, 2014

BOARDERS at Ratu Emeri Catholic Primary School at Kubulau in Bua have no option but to sleep on old and deteriorating beds.

As a result, the school management and board committee members pleaded with the Prime Minister during a talanoa session on Wednesday to provide at least 20 new beds.

Committee member Sepesa Kula said the beds were brought in by a Catholic priest in 1955 and were slowly deteriorating.

He said the 22 boarders shared beds sometimes and the students would be grateful if the government could assist the school with 20 new beds.

The Prime Minister requested the Education Ministry to take note of the plea.

Divisional education officer North Satya Nand Shandil said they would look into the matter.
