Koroinasau Primary School is located 5 kilometres inland from the Coral Coast of Fiji. The coral coast is located on the southern side of the main island, half way between both Nadi and Suva.

This isolated school services 4 villages and offers classes from grade 1 through to grade 8 for approximately 100 students. Usually 40% of these children board at the school during the school week because of the distance of the 2 outlying villages. Often these students arrive with no clothes or food.

Unemployment is 90% in the villages. School charges per family is Fj 10.00 per year (Aust $5.40).

Our Club's First Overseas Project.

The club has undertaken their 1st overseas project in July 2014 and worked to extend the clean and safe drinking water supply for the school, minor maintenance of both school buildings and school grounds and also minor infrastructure needed.

The bonus for the South Launceston Rotary Club was the huge positive team building venture.

The club believes this project in Fiji fully meets the 'Ideal of Service' in particular the opportunity for the development of acquaintance and the advancement of international understanding, goodwill and peace. Long term benefits for our club are assured through enabling the next generation of Rotarians to participate in an outstanding international Rotary project that will bring positive change to others.
