New facility for school

A PRIMARY school in Sigatoka will now be able to offer classes to pre-school children after the completion of a new kindergarten and playground.

The assistance to Nadrala Sangam School was made possible by Outrigger Fiji Beach Resort's executive chef Shailesh Naidu.

Mr Naidu, a former student of the school, said he knew the school needed the facilities.

"They were trying their best to build a kindergarten but were struggling with finance," he said.

"They needed this kindergarten as local pre-school kids had to walk a very long way to attend one.

"I approached the resort general manager Peter Hopgood to discuss the project.

"With strong support from the Nadrala community, Outrigger Fiji's engineering team finished construction of the kindergarten."

After this was completed, the engineering team helped erect a fence and playground.

According to the school head teacher Pranil Kumar Singh, the fencing and playground was a timely boost for the school.

"Our enrolment has increased and we are thankful to Chef Naidu and the engineering team at Outrigger Fiji Beach Resort," he said.

"These contributions are a proud moment for the community of Nadrala."

Meanwhile, Mr Hopgood said it was the culture of Outrigger Fiji to give back to the local community.
