Satish Nakched has brought up a se­ri­ous safety is­sue in the way the In­done­sian sol­diers are working, us­ing bam­boo scaf­fold­ing se­cured with ropes and not wear­ing a safety har­ness.

I be­lieve that our Fi­jian au­thor­i­ties should step in and help re­solve this is­sue. On a lighter note, we have seen movies where Asians use bam­boos as scaf­folds when they build houses, flats or of­fices a cou­ple lev­els high. We have seen a lot of martial arts movies and those who have com­bined it with gym­nas­tics, where peo­ple jump and swing on these bam­boo scaf­folds with­out it breaking. QVS stu­dents and teach­ers want the school re­built as soon as pos­si­ble and the In­done­sian sol­diers know and trust their bam­boo scaf­fold. The last time I was there, the only two level build­ing in QVS was the school of­fice block which had the li­brary on the top floor. Could the rel­e­vant author­ity look into this is­sue please?
