Petition for boys' hostel

Siteri Sauvakacolo
Tuesday, July 08, 2014

A PETITION has been signed by the former scholars of Levuka Public School asking for the construction of a boys' hostel to replace the one that burned down two years ago.

Former scholar Mathew Robinson said the petition was signed by about 150 former scholars and would be taken to the Ministry of Education and copied to Prime Minister Rear Admiral (Ret) Voreqe Bainimarama as well as the President, Ratu Epeli Nailatikau.

He said they hoped the boys' hostel would be rebuilt soon as well as a new kitchen for the girls.

Mr Robinson also expressed the former scholars' gratitude to sponsors who made the LPS reunion a success.

"If not for the sponsorship we wouldn't be able to make it happen.

"We are also thankful to the Patterson Brothers for assisting us in bringing over the Fiji Police Force band to Levuka, we were well represented at the celebration," Mr Robinson said.

About $16,000 was raised at the soli for the school.

"It was a unique event, the welcome ceremony for the president was special."
