STUDENTS of two rural schools in Bua will now be able to study in well-structured facilities after Japanese Government-funded classrooms were officially opened in the two areas yesterday.

Japanese Embassy's second secretary Masayuki Ikeda officially handed over three new classroom blocks and a storage room at Ratu Luke Secondary School and three other blocks equipped with furniture and a hand wash area at Lekutu District School.

The Japanese Government provided $178,000 to the school for the completion of the project.

"As the only secondary school in the Wainunu District which comprises seven main villages and several settlements, the facility will also be used as an evacuation centre for the communities in times of emergencies such as cyclones," a statement from the Embassy of Japan said.

For Lekutu Primary School, the Japanese Government provided $169,045 for the project. "Overall, this project aims to improve the school's health and safety standards as well as quality of education."
