Tuvalu Prime Minister Kausea Natano made his first visit to Funafuti Adventist Primary School on February 12.
Mr Natano acknowledged the hard work of teachers in educating the country’s future leaders and he encouraged the students to study hard. He also committed to assisting the school in any way possible to deliver quality education.
Funafuti has seen an increase in enrolment this year to 316 students, with 88 per cent coming from a non-Adventist background.
“What a great opportunity for revealing Jesus in our school,” principal Kima Pedro said.
