Aussie family gives $5000 for school upgrade

MALOMALO Primary School students in Nadroga will be able to have better classroom experience after an Australian family came to their aid.

The school which is located near InterContinental Fiji Gold Resort and Spa was given a $5000 cheque from the Lewis family who are regular guests at the resort.

The family returned to the school with the money after they noticed the classrooms did not have proper ventilation systems during their first visit to Fiji.

Launching the "Malomalo Primary School — Bring Them Light and a Breeze Appeal" campaign, members of the family were able to raise the money for the purchase of ceiling fans and lights.

Resort general manager Eric Stuebe said the resort's community care fund was a continuing project aimed at continuously developing education and preserving cultural treasures.

"We're delighted our guests are actively working with us to help create a brighter future for the children of Natadola Bay," Mr Stuebe said.
