Japan upgrades Tupou High School, Nukunuku Campus

Tupou High School campus at Nukunuku received a grant of TP$163,624.10 on  Tuesday 4  from the Japanese government.  

The Free Wesleyan Church funded school will use the grant to help fund classroom building renovation for Form 1-5  including Staff Room, multi-purpose hall renovation  such as window frames & floor, new toilet building  – 4 rooms each for male & female students and a 10,000 litre water tank.

The contract  was signed by  H.E Dr. Kazuchika Hamuro, Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of Japan to the Kingdom of Tonga and Mr. Holani Tu’inauvai, Chairperson of the Parents and Teachers Association of Tupou High School.

“This project meets the aim of GGP and will contribute to improving the quality of Universal Basic Education, which is one of the priority objectives of Tonga’s development strategy,” said H.E. Dr. Kazuchika Hamuro in his key note address.  

The Nukunuku Campus PTA  sought the Japanese assistance in September 2013.

Right now Kaniva News provides a free, politically independent, bilingual news service for readers around the world that is absolutely unique. We are the largest New Zealand-based Tongan news service, and our stories reach Tongans  wherever they are round the world. But as we grow, there are increased demands on Kaniva News for translation into Tongan on our social media accounts and for the costs associated with expansion. We believe it is important for Tongans to have their own voice and for Tongans to preserve their language, customs and heritage. That is something to which we are strongly committed. That’s why we are asking you to consider sponsoring our work and helping to preserve a uniquely Tongan point of view for our readers and listeners.
