What do you think about Tafaigata Prison being turned into a school?


Tusa Afele, 58, Aleipata

The most important thing is to repair it first. Classes shouldn't be taken in those places because it used to be a prison. They should have constructed a new building instead of using the old building. It is good to build a school but they should construct a new building.

Many people know that place is the old prison. It is not good, the school should have been established at a different location for the student's safety. I don't support having the old prison being turned into a school. They should have constructed a new building for the school.

I don't think it is good for little kids to go to school there because that place is an old prison. The former building was used for a different purpose and now it is going to be a school for kids. I don't support this.


Segi Luko, 39, Samatau

I don't support this. It would have been better if it were older students. This place was were prisoners stayed and I don't think it is healthy for these little kids to go to school there. It would have been better if the school was to be established at some other place but not at the former prison.


Taeaonalua Lauina, 32, Fasitoo tai

This was where prisoners were before and that might affect the students when they find out that their school used to be a prison. A school would be good for the residents of the village nearby. But I don't support the prison being turned into a school.

It would be good for the residents nearby to the school but it might affect the students when they find out that their school used to be a prison. If it was a school for older students then they would understand.
