THE Anglican Church of Melanesia has been given the green light for its planned national secondary to be built in East Malaita.
According to the diocesan secretary of the Anglican diocese of Malaita, Mr Anthony Maelasi, “the acquisition process has already been done and we are waiting for the national budget to be passed during the June budget sitting later this year from the national government.
He said the school is a national project from the national government for Malaita province under the Anglican Church of Melanesia (ACOM).
This year’s budget from the national government is for the feasibility study and the detail design of the buildings.
So far a fundraising task force is already set up in Honiara to raise funds in support of the school establishment and other means.
The land title of the parcel of land is already with the ACOM for negotiations with the land owners for the outright purchasing of the land, hopefully after the Easter break in few weeks’ time.
