A GROUP of students put aside their daily chores in their respective homes and decided to clean up the Bayly Welfare premises in Labasa at the weekend.
The students are members of the Blue Light program in the Northern Division which is organised by the Fiji Police Force.
Bayly Welfare?Ts welfare officer Satishwar Chand said the students offered a helping hand to show their support for their friends whose education was supported by the organisation.
?oThere are a number of students who are assisted by us here at the welfare office and through them, their mates have shown interest to come and clean our compound,? he said.
?oThe Blue Light program has imparted a sense of ownership to the students because they have taken a strong stand to help their mates. This is really something good and we are calling on other corporate organisations to show their support to the less fortunate children whose education and families are being looked after by us,? said Mr Chand.
Police media officer northern Constable Luke Rawalai said the initiative would also foster a good relationship network between the students and their friends who have been supported by the welfare.
?oThe students who are Blue Light ambassadors are happy to offer their help and we know it will not only create an even better environment look for the office but also strengthen the relationship networks between students and their friends.
?oThis is the first clean up for the students this year and there will be more lined up throughout the year,? said Constable Rawalai.
