Yesterday was the last day of the school term and Apii Nikao students are excited to be spending time with families and friends.
Wānaka Sun reports thatnew books were purchased for the Apii Nikao school library and two pallets of quality second-hand books, to be used in Lilliput libraries in the villages, to be shipped to the Cook Islands.
Rotary Club Wānaka’s foundation committee director Nicola Brown said there were about 40 banana boxes of books on each pallet holding about 1,600 books.
School principal Elizabeth Kapi said her school’s parent-teachers association was excited to receive the generous donation.
“On behalf of all our students, teachers and school community, meitaki maata for this wonderful gift,” Kapi said.
