Japan’s Grassroots and Human Security Project this week handed over a new classroom building for Aimela Early Childhood School worth more than $520,000.

Ambassador of Japan to Solomon Islands Yoshiaki Miwa in delivering the building said it is very important that “we recognize how important a well-educated and healthy youth population.”

He added a well-educated generation is great for an advancement of society, economies and increasing a standard of living for the future.

“Early Childhood Education is important as it is the first stage of formal education for children and be in a good and conducive environment is very important. To the teachers and committee members, thank you for your effort and commitment to provide a safe environment for the children to learn,” said Miwa.

He continued: “I do hope that you are proud of your commitment and would take ownership of this classroom building. In addition, I do believe and assure you here today that this funded infrastructure will one day produce potential leaders that will bring continuous positive change to our communities, constituency, province and country.”

He highlighted that the Grassroots Assistance aims to improve and to strengthen basic infrastructure in education sector.

“I am delighted we have this occasion to celebrate our longstanding partnership in education. Japan will continue efforts in assistance for the education field to see more happy faces in many places of Solomon Islands and to cultivate cordial relationship between Japan and Solomon Islands,” said the ambassador.

The Principal of Aimela CHS Sam Subukalia described the completion of the classroom as a dream come true.

“This project is a dream come true that will improve the many hardships and struggles the ECE strand had had over the years since 2012,” he said.

Subukalia said they are now lucky to be amongst other ECE schools in the country to have a better teaching and learning facility that will benefit their children now and into the future.

The principal on behalf of the school and community thanked Japan for the support through its grassroots project.
