The Valebasoga Secondary school block was reconstructed through a $160k funding from the Prime Minsiter’s Office, while Vunivutu Secondary School received a grant of $90k.

Bainimarama said his Government was investing in school facilities throughout the country:

We want to have the best possible teachers throughout the country to inspire our children, better facilities for our children to learn in, and better equipment and other educational materials for our children.

When we made education truly free and ended the practice of schools requiring different kinds of payments from parents, we ensured that every child has equal access to quality education.

He said that every child should have equal access to quality and free education.
