Three hundred and thirty primary schools in the remote and maritime areas will soon receive educational and entertaining reading books for Year One to Year Five students under the Read to Lead - Fiji Programme by Vision Fiji.
While handing over the books to the Ministry of Education Read to Lead - Fiji Patron, Mary Bainimarama said the schools will receive an instant library called an “Everyday Books Box Library” that includes 250 books at different reading levels, teaching resources, a CD-ROM, activity guides and lesson plans for teachers.
Bainimarama said the first phase of this Programme is targeting, as a priority, those primary schools that have the least resources.
She added they still have another 402 schools to assist.
She said this Programme was made possible with the combined assistance from the Fiji Water Foundation and the Australian High Commission who donated $200,000 and $100,000 respectively.
