DEVASTATION CAUSED BY CYCLONE WINSTON

Cyclone Winston struck with great force, affecting hundreds of houses in the many islands of the Fiji group. Some of the worst hit areas are Koro Island, Kadavu Island, parts of Viti Levu such as Raki Raki, Vanuabalavu, Vanua Levu towns such as Labasa and the Lau Group of Islands. Many schools lost roofs, walls and valuable resources as the cyclone caused havoc to their communities. New Zealand assistance was instantly available as Air Force planes delivered water, food and urgent supplies. The Auckland Fijian communities responded with food supplies, clothing and materials taken to Fiji free by Fiji Airways. The Fiji Association has a twofold aim - to help ground agencies and to help schools in the weeks ahead. Fiji schools worst affected are closed and neighboring ones will be providing assistance where they can. Some of the schools which have received previous assistance from the Fiji Association during past cyclones (eg 1980's) have again been badly damaged or destroyed. Among them are schools in RakiRaki, Ba, Tavua, Koro and Kadavu. The Association has also postponed the 2016 secondary schools writing competition announcement till later in the term, as many schools are not operating normally, some not at all because of the cyclone damages.
