27 August 2010  Mr. Yoshimitsu Kawata, Deputy Head of Mission Embassy of Japan in Nuku'alofa officially handover the Project for Upgrading of Hoi Government Primary School on Friday, August 27th.

The handover ceremony celebrates the completion of two new classrooms built together with four toilet blocks funded by the Government of Japan. The funding also covered furniture (48 desks and chairs) for the new classrooms and repairing work to roofs and verandas of the four old classrooms of Hoi Primary School.

Japan, under its Grant Assistance for Grassroots Human Security Project (GGP), allocated a total of US$55,055 (TOP$100,000) to cover the material and construction cost for the project. The construction work was carried out by Tafolo & Associates Ltd.

Hoi Primary School was established in 1969. Its four classrooms no longer can accommodate the growing number of students. This year about 99 students and four teachers will benefit from Japan's assistance.

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.
