Cutting of ribbon by Deputy PM

Students of staff of Alofi-o-Taoa College in North-West Savaii last Friday thanked government and its development partners for its brand new campus.

Delivering the keynote address, Prime Minister Tuilaepa Sailele Maliegaoi adviced parents, staff and school committee to make full use of the new facilities.

“Parents should ensure their children are attending school, the village council should ensure the parents are doing their job, the school committee is tasked with looking after these facilities and the principal and staff are responsible with delivering the necessary curriculum to students.

“From today, these facilities will start aging. It will be helped by very industrious, very talented students who like to scribble on desks and walls.”

Addressing the students, Tuilaepa said,

“I’m sure there are as many architects, lawyers and accountants among you as there are talented rugby players, netballers and cricket champs. Hear it from me and keep it close to your heart. You only get one opportunity to pursue a good education in life. Take advantage of it now.”

The new facilities include new classrooms, a computer lap, an agro-science lab, a library, a staff room and a restroom block.

There are also living and study quarters for the principal and staff.

The school committee – represented by paramount orator Lavea Loia – requested government to rebuild the college’s sports field.

The $2.3 million campus was jointly-funded by government, the Asian Development Bank, AusAID and NZaid under the continuing Education Infrastructure Development Programme.

Alofi-o-Taoa College has a student roll of 425 and serves the districts of Gagaifomauga I, Gagaifomauga II and Gagaifomauga III.
