AFTER about 50 years, present and former students of Vunidawa District School witnessed a milestone achievement for the school with the opening of the new classroom block at Vunidawa on Thursday.

The new classroom block, which consists of three classrooms, a library and the head teacher's office, cost about $137,000 and will provide proper education for about 100 students.

The opening of the new classroom by the Prime Minister, Rear Admiral (Ret) Voreqe Bainimarama, would help students in their day to day studies and help them in getting a better education.

School manager Uraia Rakavono said the school was established in 1924 and the opening of the classroom block was a big change for everyone.

School head boy, Setoki Naitei Jr, said it was great seeing the change that took place in the school and students would certainly enjoy attending classes.

Former student Keyasi Korovava, 76, remembers attending classes in the old wooden classroom that was situated where the new classroom stands.

Rear Admiral (Ret) Bainimarama said the government was always there to uplift the standard of education for students in the rural and remote areas of Fiji.

Students from Naqara, Nakorovatu, Nabena, Delaitoga, Matailobau and Vuisiga villages in Naitasiri attend the school.
