Prime Minister Voreqe Bainimarama has commissioned the new Boys Hostel at Levuka Public High School.

While speaking at the opening, Bainimarama says they have upgraded, renovated and rebuilt 20 buildings on this campus which came at a cost of more than $1.8 million.

Bainimarama says the dormitory was badly damaged by fire in 2012 and the existing timber structure had to be demolished and rebuilt using concrete block.

The Prime Minister says his government has made a commitment to free education and if they do not give students an equal education, they deny them equal opportunity in life which is something the government will never consider.

Nearly 400 students attend Levuka Public High School.

Bainimarama says since TC Winston they are building all school buildings to the strongest standards so that they can withstand severe storms because our schools need to be safe places for our children.
