Plea to save school

Luke Rawalai
Wednesday, July 30, 2014

A TOTAL of 152 students may have to find new schools with the imminent closure of the Naseakula District School in Labasa.

The management of the school are seeking assistance from good Samaritans for funding to keep the 75-year-old school open.

School manager Isoa Rasousou said the school had unpaid lease money worth $6000.

Mr Rasousou said the school had been approached by the iTaukei Land Trust Board informing them of the looming closure of the school if the $6000 lease fees were not paid off soon.

He said the total lease money was $12,000 and that the management had been able to pay off half of the total with a balance of $6000.

"The school started off in 1939 as a district school serving students from as far as Mali Island, Uluibau, Qawa and Bulileka," Mr Rasousou said.

"We have been holding fundraising (events) but this has not sufficed to pay off the remaining balance.

"We are seeking assistance from kind donors and old students to keep the school doors open for the current 152 students in the school."

Mr Rasousou said the school served students in Naseakula, Wailevu, Nakama and children of civil servants in Labasa.

"On behalf of the school management, I would like to seek assistance of kind-hearted people to help us keep this school going so that children can continue to seek their future in this institution."
