Bainimarama said the grid extension is part of his vision of the North that enjoys the same services and infrastructure as found on Viti Levu. Bainimarama believes that every Fijian is entitled to the same quality of life, regardless of where they islands they call home.

The project extended about one km of electricity line to 16 classroom blocks and 14 staff quarters at the Holy Cross Secondary School.

This project extended about 1km of LV line to 16 classroom blocks and 14 staff quarters at the Holy Cross Secondary School, bringing the many advantages of electricity and gird connectivity to your students and staff.

Bainimarama said the students will be able to study late into the night, they will have access to computers, lab equipment and copiers and they will learn in a bright, welcoming environment instead of having to worry about access to electricity.

Every time another Fijian is connected to electricity in their homes, office or school we boost the collective potential of our people. We give those Fijians the chance to use new technologies, stay safe in the evening hours and become even more productive members of our society. And when we do well individually, Fiji does even better as a whole.

This electrification project costed government $178,842.
