Official School Grant Presentation


Tafa Sa, High Chief and President of Iva School Committee at signing

This morning Japanese officials from their embassy in Wellington, New Zealand had an official signing of “Grant Contracts” under their Grassroots Grant Aid Program with five Samoan school committees. With newspaper cameras flashing and television recorders blinking the signing took place before crossed Japanese and Samoan flags. It was all very formal, punctual, and Japanese for no food was served, which put a damper on the entire affair.

Schools awarded grants were: Fasitoouta, Vailoa, Matatalufu, Faletolu, and Iva.
