This news in the Fiji Times certainly is embarrassing for former students of this school. The school management say the school is behind in their rent to the TLTB. They recently had a bazaar to try and raise funds to pay the debt. But there is more behind the story. The owner of the land on which the school was built in about 1939 is a clan from Naseakula village. Also, the people of Naseakula (parents and grandparents of the students of this school) do get money from many leases around Labasa so they are not poor. Labasa town is close so there is an opportunity for some jobs. There is a lot of land which can be planted in vegtetables etc. to sell. So why do they ask strangers and 'good samaritans' for money?
On a positive note, the footpath recently built from the village to the school does look good and will be great for the children to avoid getting muddy on the way to and from their school.
