Students of Balevuto Primary School, in Ba, will soon boast of new dormitory facilities after their request for these facilities was approved by the Prime Minister Commodore Voreqe Bainimarama yesterday.

Commodore Voreqe Bainimarama made the announcement during his brief meeting with residents of the rural Ba district.

“The RFMF engineers will soon be deployed to Balevuto Primary to construct two dormitories for the students there,” he said.

The school caters for more than 100 students from the larger Moto areas.

The Prime Minister heard that primary school students were currently staying with teachers while attending school there.

“Education is a very important cornerstone of development; not only for my government but also the nation.”

Education has already been made free from this year after the Government announced in November last year its commitment to pay for all fees of students in primary and secondary schools.

Prime Minister Bainimarama was also in Ba to meet Territorial Force soldiers and made time to meet Ba residents and discuss issues they faced.
