PARENTAL support for students of Adi Elaine Primary School in Bua has been labelled a pillar of strength for teachers.

The contribution to the new library building and other needs of the school has been shouldered by parents of Batinivuriwai settlement.

Parent Rusiate Brown said the great support from parents was because they wanted their children to succeed in life.

"We may stay in a rural area but priorities for our children's education remains paramount at all times," he said.

"Whenever the teachers tell us parents about anything they need for the school, we always give our heart to help out and that is important.

"We need to support our schools and teachers so that our children can have a bright future."

Other parents in the village shared similar sentiments adding that they had even cut wood from the forest to help build the new school library.

School head Vereni Kuriviti said they were blessed to have such good parents.

He said even the young in the village supplied roofing iron for the library.

"We have received good support from the parents and this is the only school in this community with 96 students," Mr Kuriviti said.

"The parents have also dug drains around the school compound to help with flow of water during heavy rain considering Wainunu being a wet area."
