Radio & TV Tonga, Nuku’alofa, 26/05/2020

Due to the impacts of COVID-19, the construction project Tonga Side School at its new location has been delayed.

The Principal of Tonga Side School – Huelo Lolomana’ia says, it was scheduled to begin late this year, but with the impacts of Covid 19, the project will most likely begin next year.

The issue was raised by the Finance Minister – Tevita Lavemaau during Parliament’s deliberations yesterday saying, most of the government’s development projects are delayed including the building of TSS at Tofoa.

The cost of the project is at $8 million pa’anga.

Lavemaau adds, despite the impacts of Covid 19 and its difficulties, the government will try its best to complete all the required projects with the resources available.

Many of the TSS students were moved from the Nuku’alofa branch to primary schools in the previous years in preparation for the construction project.
