The Government of Japan and the Montfort Technical Institute on Wednesday marked the ground breaking ceremony to commence the construction of a student’s dormitory.
The project is funded through Japan’s Grant Assistance for Grass-Roots human security project.
The project is to construct a new dormitory, kitchen and a bathroom facility.
The grant is more than US$87000 or equivalent to about $170 thousand pa’anga.
The new students’ dormitory will be the first dormitory for Montfort since it was established in 1996.
It will be named as Bro. Josepth Kottoor Memorial Boys Hostel, in tribute to the first principal of the institute, who passed away early this year.
Montfort is a Technical Institute offering technical courses for both male and female student in Carpentry, Automotive Mechanical and Electric engineering.
Brother Sebastian, Principal of Montfort said that the project will provide an accommodation facility for students from the outer islands.
Attended the program were Japan Ambassador to Tonga H.E Tetsuya Ishii, His Eminence Cardinal Mafi among others.
