GPS Kahoa gets an upgrade

17 August, 2010

Mr. Yoshimitsu Kawata, Deputy Head of Mission, Embassy of Japan in Nuku'alofa attended a handover ceremony for the Project for Upgrading of Kahoua Government Primary School on Tuesday, August 17th.

The handover ceremony celebrates the completion of three new classrooms built into the new location of Kahoua Primary School together with eight toilet blocks funded by the Government of Japan.

The funding came under Japan's Grant Assistance for Grassroots Human Security Project (GGP) with a total of US$80,378 (TOP$146,000) to cover the material and construction cost for the project. The construction work was carried out by Tafolo & Associates Ltd.

Japan's assistance will benefit the current 150 students and 5 teachers of Kahoua Primary School. The school was established in February 1985 and since then have used the Kahoua Town Centre as classrooms for the last 25 years.
This assistance indicates Japan's commitment to address basic need at the grassroots level which includes education, health, water supply, vocational training, sanitary environment and rural infrastructure.

It is hoped that this assistance will contribute to further strengthen the friendly ties between the Government and the people of Japan and the Kingdom of Tonga.
