In September 2008, sixteen staff, students and community members from Chancellor State College visited Miaru for nine days to complete the construction of the school library. This was achieved by a combination of factors including having the funds from fund-raising throughout 2008, and with the support and energy of the Board of Management and the people of Miaru Village.
