The Fijian Government’s $13.8 million allocation in this year’s budget will go a long way in inspiring teachers especially in the rural and remote areas.
Prime Minister Voreqe Bainimarama while opening the newly built teacher’s quarters at Nabukaluka District School in Naitiasiri yesterday said such ‘extra push’ from the government will ignite the passion and inspire the teachers.
“For decades, that spark of inspiration was missing from many schools in rural and maritime regions as their facilities –including teachers’ quarters – were noticeably shabbier than schools in urban areas,”PM Bainimarama said.
“With the comfort and security of proper housing, your teachers can focus on what matters most – teaching.”
The Prime Minister also commissioned a newly built Early Childhood Education center at the school.
