GOVERNMENT has spent about $47million in development projects in the Naitasiri area.

And the latest development in the area was the $32,000 Nawaisomo Primary School construction last week, officiated by Prime Minister Rear Admiral (Ret) Voreqe Bainimarama.

"Since the beginning of this year, I've been to 10 schools across the country to open classrooms and other facilities like the new building here at Nawaisomo Primary School. I look forward to these events more than any other because they give me a chance to meet young Fijians and their parents," the Prime Minister said at the opening.

"For the parents and all elders we must all encourage our children to attend school and study hard.

"In return, all we ask is that we all work hard. For your parent's sake, for your country's sake but especially for your own sake."
