The Acting Chinese Ambassador Yang Zaohui was also at GPS Ngele’ia this morning and gave each student with a bowl of weetbix.
“Today’s breakfast project is merely a microcosm of China Tonga educational cooperation. The main purpose of this project is to enable the students to accumulate abundant nutrients in order to better prepare for the upcoming exams.”
