New facilities for school

STUDENTS of Nadi Primary School will now be able to access library and computer services.

This was made possible through a $20,000 collaborative project between the school and the Radisson Blu Hotels and Resorts.

Hotel manager Paul Halford said this was not the first time they had assisted the school.

"Last year, we noticed the school needed resources for water supply and so for World Water Day celebrations, we donated water tanks and pumps to the school," he said.

"The project was possible through our Australian donor and all our guests at Radisson Blu. Since then, our relationship has been extremely good.

"We have been helping three other schools with their libraries."

According to Mr Halford, the school helped to furnish the newly built computer lab as well.

"Basically the contributions from the hotel and school have helped complete this project. Our Australian donor also helped with the shipping of books.

"Our hotel staff took out time to help set up the library and computer lab. We are very proud to be associated with this project and helping the students."
