AUSTRALIA'S University of Wollongong was instrumental in helping needy students of Lautoka last year, giving about $12,000 in financial assistance to needy students and the university is looking to continue providing support for those who need it.

Divisional Education Officer Western Lorima Voravora said this was an initiative that was welcomed by the ministry.

"Our partnership with the university has gone on for the past 25 years," he said.

"Every time they come to Fiji, they will donate more than $1000 and this is a very welcome gesture."

Mr Voravora said they had a trust organisation where they surveyed the applications that came in from students who needed financial assistance.

"We then give them the support they need and this program is continuing for the poorest students in Lautoka."
