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.
