Lami- Investing in high quality quarters is about more than providing teachers with a sense of physical safety and security.
It’s about more than granting them comfort. These investments express to our teachers that we value them and their contribution to Fijian society.
Prime Minister Honourable Josaia Voreqe Bainimarama made these remarks while commissioning the teachers’ quarters project at Ballantine Memorial School this morning.
The project – a single and duplex quarters – which was funded by the Office of the Prime Minister under the Small Grants Scheme at a cost of more than $660,000, is another direct investment by the Fijian Government aimed at improving the well-being of our teachers and the quality of education they provide for our children.
Prime Minister Bainimarama said throughout his service as Prime Minister, nothing has made him prouder than the progress we’ve made in educating our children.
“Let’s press Fiji’s education revolution onwards and let’s do it as safely as it can be done,” he said.
School board representative Fotu Kolinisau, while speaking on behalf of the school management, sincerely thanked the Prime Minister for placing education at the heart of his service to the nation.
“We have witnessed your government’s commitment to the education of our children and your investment on the well-being of our teachers. This is something we are grateful for. Thank you very much Prime Minister.”
