The Deputy Education Director – ‘Isikeli Oko says, the project includes the newly constructed buildings equipped to withstand the impacts of climate change.

“The project includes the construction of six classrooms for the class 6 level in Nuku’alofa GPS which is part of the government’s construction project for schools that were impacted by Cyclone Gita and Harold.”
