Levuka Public School last week received two new washing machines for its new girls hostel.
The washing machines were handed over to the school by the Ministry of Education, National Heritage, Culture and Arts permanent secretary Dr Brij Lal.
The washing machines were promised to the school by the Minister for Education Filipe Bole when he opened the new girls hostel earlier in the year.
“These washing machines should ease the work load on the boarding girls so they can spend more time in their academic preparation. It is the wish of the minister and I for students to be assisted in all ways possible so they can maximize their potential,” Dr Lal said.
School principal, Mrs Nanise Tuimanono thanked the minister and his permanent secretary for the kind donation.
She said this would provide the needed motivation for the school, especially the boarding girls to perform better this year.
The school has also been boosted with the inclusion of Levuka Town on the World Heritage listing recently.
Dr Brij Lal said the Ministry of Education was focused on the theme Step Up for 2013 and all schools were expected to put in the desired effort to perform beyond the attainments of 2012.
The permanent secretary also visited some of the heritage schools in Levuka to see the progress of development on the site.
