The school suffered structural damages during TC Winston in 2016.

In the aftermath of TC Winston, classes were conducted in tents.

Japanese Ambassador to Fiji Omura Masahiro says he is glad that the new building is also designated as an evacuation centre.

He says the Government of Japan provided funding under its Grant Assistance for Grassroots Human Security Projects Programme.

Masahiro says since 1990, through the GGP Programme, Japan has been providing assistance to grassroots communities in Fiji, with over 387 Projects worth more than US $27m.

He adds this is aimed at socio-economic development and enhancement of human security in Fiji.

In 2019, a dining hall and a kindergarten were also built with the support of the Fijian government.

Education Minister Rosy Akbar says the government put in $433,000 for these projects.
