Thanks from Navakawau Primary Kids





It's Time Foundation

Kids from Navakawau Primary send a big vinaka (thank you) to members of Rotary Club of Balwyn.

Remote Island schools either don’t have any electricity at all or they have a decent generator that runs for a couple hours during the day and a couple of hours during the evening for the teachers. Balwyn Rotary funded a solar system that gives the school 24-hour power and that means these kids can step into a modern education.
The money that is saved on diesel creates decades of cash flow to buy the computers and the other electronic resources for the school and will also save heaps and heaps of carbon dioxide.

The school has 165 students, 9 teachers, 8 teachers’ quarters. The school sustained significant cyclone damage and much of the school has been rebuilt repaired with very strong replacements – completed mid 2019.

    one hand. Too old to learn new tricks perhaps. Marcus Godinho, executive
    director, spoke to us before hand about overcoming the challenges presented
