Three new classrooms opened in Kahoua

Three new classrooms at Kahoua Government Primary School were officially opened February 9 by the New Zealand High Commissioner to Tonga Sarah Walsh and Australia’s Acting High Commissioner Sophie Temby.

The project is part of an initiative the two countries have initiated to support Tongan government in improving access and quality of education for all children in the kingdom.

“The new classrooms, complete with a water collection system for the school, are funded by the Governments of New Zealand and Australia under the Tonga Education Support Programme II (TESPII)”,  a statement from the New Zealand High Commissioner in Tonga said.

They replaced “deteriorating classrooms that were leaking, had no electricity and were overcrowded,” it said.
