Stu­dents of Queen Vic­to­ria School are likely to re­sume school from next term. This fol­lows con­fir­ma­tion by the In­done­sian De­fence Force that they hope to com­plete re­build­ing works at the school by mid- Au­gust.

First Sec­re­tary at the In­done­sian Em­bassy in Fiji, Am­bro­sious Thomas said they were look­ing for­ward to com­plete this project by Au­gust. He made this as­sur­ance dur­ing a visit by the Min­is­ter for Ed­u­ca­tion, Ma­hen­dra Reddy, to the school in Tailevu yes­ter­day.

“Not all of the build­ings will be re­con­structed. We pri­ori­tise mainly on the main hall, class­rooms and then the labs,” Mr Thomas said. “We have the as­sess­ment re­port from the en­gi­neers and we are try­ing to syn­chro­nize our de­signs with yours.” Mean­while, Mr Reddy said the pri­or­ity to get the class­rooms, labs, the dor­mi­tory and the staff quar­ters re­built first was good, be­cause only then they could get the stu­dents and staff back into the school. “It would be good for us to tar­get the re­turn of the stu­dents in term two. The only rea­son we didn’t want stu­dents here was to give the con­struc­tion team room and not to be hin­dered by stu­dents or staff on cam­pus,” he said.
