Centre for kids a relief

YOUNG children of Navilawa Village in Sabeto can now spend their learning hours just a stone throw away from their homes.

This was made possible by Radisson Blu Resort Fiji of Denarau which funded the construction of the Early Childhood Learning Centre.

Before the centre opened, students as young as five years old were boarders at the nearest institution, Navilawa District School, located about 15 kilometres from the village.

Village headman Filimone Botitu said the learning centre was what parents had been requesting for a long time.

"It was mostly what the parents wanted because each week their children would leave them and live at the Nalotawa District School hostel," he said.

"These included our kindergarten students."

Radisson Blu Resort general manager Gerard Knight said about $20,000 was invested into the construction of the centre.
