The Ministry of Education is pleased to announce that the two government boarding schools, RKS and QVS which have been undergoing renovation works will be ready to accommodate the students today.
Degei House, one of the four hostel units housing the RKS boarders was razed to the ground by fire last year.
The Ministry of Education is working with all stakeholders to rebuild the school dormitories and improve the overall infrastructure of the school.
The renovation of the three dormitories housing the students from the previously burned Degei House is nearing completion.
For QVS, a state of the art, three storey building is nearing completion.
This will house additional rooms after the devastation left behind by TC Winston.
The rooms will cater for three streams of Year 12, three streams of Year 13, a staff room and gym.
A new hostel project for QVS will be funded by the Indonesian government, for which the construction work may be expected to be completed within this year.
A final inspection was carried out yesterday to ensure they are prepared to receive the students today for the new school year.
