STUDENTS of Noco Secondary School in Rewa now have access to a better education facility with the opening of their new library yesterday.

One hundred and thirty four students now have access to the new library which contains more books and materials for students to use during the school term.

Education Minister Filipe Bole said when the school was established in 2006, the roll was only 13 but now there were 134 students from around Rewa. He said the new facility which consisted of a library and staffroom cost $80,000 to construct and took six weeks to build.

Mr Bole said the library would help the students attain more knowledge especially on issues from around the world.

He said teachers needed to have a proper work environment so they could perform well.

Noco Secondary School head girl Salote Tilolo said before the school had a small library which was inadequately resourced and too small to cater for a class.
