Thanks to support from 67 churches in Upolu (Samoa), Lalovaea Seventh-day Adventist College celebrated the opening of a new building and new classrooms on campus, at a ceremony held on Sabbath, July 4.

During his opening address, general secretary of the Samoa Tokelau Mission, Pastor Sione Ausage, thanked the church for its support and gave glory to God for the new building, four classrooms, two offices and toilets.

“The reason why we are here is to celebrate together the official opening of this work and I would like to welcome everyone who are here,” he said. “We are also opening the library for the school and also the food and textiles technology and visual arts classrooms . . . a computer lab [and] a science lab [today].

Mrs Linda Fuliese was given the honour to cut the ribbon to officially open the new building.

In an interview with Samoa Observer, Pastor Ausage said the construction started in March this year when the COVID-19 global pandemic started to peak, and finished in June.

“The state of emergency did not have a huge impact on the construction of the building because people were not prohibited to come to work and the Church had followed the rules of the state of emergency,” he added.

The construction of the new classrooms and facilities was completed at a cost of $438,172.96 tala.
