Friday 15 March 2024 | Written by Melina Etches | Published in Local, National


Parents and guardians of Apii Nikao are kindly asked to pack their grass cutters, blowers, rakes, sponges, rags, brooms, and cleaning products, ready for tomorrow’s (Saturday) deep clean working bee.

George George, chairperson of the Apii Nikao Parents and Teachers Association (PTA), said the working bee will start in the morning at about 7.30am.

With the school roll number being 400 students, George said he is hopeful that a good, supportive number of parents will show up to help out.

He said that the school fees are not enough to help with the upkeep of the maintenance it needs.

“Our school needs a good facelift,” said George. “The grass needs to be cut right back including the sides and the outside of the field, and the inside of the school including the doors and walls needs a good wipe down.”

For parents unable to attend due to work or urgent commitments, the PTA is kindly asking if they could drop off a small contribution (katikati) for the hardworking volunteers.

George said he is looking forward to getting the school looking bright and cleaner, and to seeing the willful and cheerful volunteers tomorrow morning.
