THE destruction of the school library in Korotari by a fire this week has saddened foreign donors who furnished it with books.
Australian Fiona Luth, who organised a fundraiser in 2002, expressed her sympathy to the students through the former school manager Pardeep Lal.
Mr Lal said Ms Luth and friends from around the world sent about 3000 library books to the school.
"The donation helped the students a lot because it gave them totally new books, which improved their reading and knowledge about the world and the surrounding," he said.
"The donation gave a new breath to the students because it changed the state of their library from old depleted books to brand new ones from overseas.
"And the donation drive was a big one because donors from the UK also gave books.
"These donors visited schools, businesses and families asking for donations so it was a lot of work."
NFA chief executive John O'Connor said investigations had not been finalised.
"We have gathered all the information needed before we finalise the report."
