Japan Assists Delainakaikai Primary School with Three New Classrooms

Press Release: No.12 / 2010

Date: Friday, 5th March, 2010

 

The Government of Japan has been continuously providing funding assistance for major capital development projects in schools throughout Fiji. The community of Delainakaikai Primary School in Lodoni, Tailevu witnessed the handing-over of the newly constructed three classrooms funded by the Government of Japan under its Grant Assistance for Grassroots Human Security Projects (GGP) programme.

The First Secretary at the Embassy of Japan, Mr. Tatsushi Matsuo represented the Ambassador of Japan, H.E. Mr. Yutaka Yoshizawa in the official handing-over ceremony of the new classroom facilities at Delainakaikai Primary School to be held at 10.00 am on Friday, 5th March, 2010.

In September, 2009, Japan provided funding assistance to Delainakaikai Primary School, worth $139,000.00, for construction of a three-classroom building complex. The new classrooms replace the old deteriorating wooden dormitory used as classrooms to house classes six, seven and eight. Established in 1979, Delainakaikai Primary School used to cater mainly for children of staff and workers of Ratu Kadavulevu School and now with its strategic location, children of Nananu, Lodoni, Dakuinuku, Uluiraua and Wainibau settlements also attend the school. The new classrooms will empower the school to provide an equal and competent learning opportunity to the 115 children attending the school.
          
Japan believes education is the key to socio-economic development and hopes to continue assisting schools in Fiji through its Grant Assistance for Grassroots Human Security Projects programme (GGP).
