Now this is a turnaround. The Dudley School baka tree will not be cut down! There is more sentiment about a tree than about certain other things in Fiji eh!

The famous 113 year old baka tree at Dudley High School will not be cut down as concerns have been raised that if the tree is cut it will have some impact and implication on the foundation of the school building. President of the Dudley Parents and Teachers Association Inia Vukialau said works are currently underway to assess the roots of the tree. Vukialau said works are also being carried out at the senior girl’s rest room which is badly damaged by the roots of the baka tree. The work is expected to be completed within the two weeks break.
