THE Vakatale Girls Hostel at Labasa College will undergo a major facelift after government allocated $365,000 for maintenance work.

While revealing this at the college's diamond jubilee at Subrail Park yesterday, Youth and Sports Minister Commander Viliame Naupoto said this was part of government's effort in providing the best for the students.

"The government has recently approved a grant of $365,000 towards the maintenance of the hostel," he said.

"The Bainimarama government promises to continue to provide grants for the purpose of upgrading the infrastructure of Labasa College and we will also look at the school's proposal for a multi-purpose hall."

"I am happy to say the school not only accommodates day scholars but also the disadvantaged children from distant, rural and maritime zones."
