Luaniua Community High School (LCHS) in Malaita Outer Islands, Malaita Province, will soon open its newly built two-storey classroom building.
The building is currently under construction.
It was the first of its kind for the school to have since construction work commenced mid-march this year.
School principal Samuel Kenini said they are expecting the building to be completed before end of this year.
“The only delay is with contractors who are taking things slowly,” he said.
Kenini added that the two-storey classroom building will house forms one, two, and three.
“This was appropriate at this time because we have classrooms for the three forms but the space is too small and students are no feeling comfortable during classes,” he said.
“With the new building we hope it would give us both staff and students a conducive environment to learn,” he said.
He added the bottom floor of the building has been earmarked for forms four and five but that would be made possible if things work according to their expectations.
“But our main ambition is to have forms four and five in the future,” Kenini said.
The building was funded under Rural Development Programme, with support of outgoing MP.
