Flying Fiji's flag

Salaseini Vosamana
Tuesday, October 09, 2012

FIJI Day arrived early for students of Labasa School for Special Education as they waved the nation's flag in a brief celebration at the school yesterday.

Even though the people of Labasa will be celebrating the event at Subrail Park today, the students and staff made an effort to celebrate in style at the school yesterday. Divisional planning officer Alipate Bolalevu told the students they had abilities to create changes despite their physical and mental condition.

Citing Paralympics gold medallist Iliesa Delana's achievement, Mr Bolalevu said nothing was unachievable if the right set of mind and heart was aligned to success.

"This year's Fiji Day is to celebrate our achievements, showcase the richness and diversity of our land and people and focus our attention on the needy and less fortunate ones in society.

"The theme 'Celebrate a United Fiji' calls us to be united, celebrate what we have in common and rejoice over our triumphs as we look towards a brighter future."

Mr Bolalevu said the theme also promoted reconciliation, unity, patriotism and nation-building.

"The celebration is for you children because you are our future leaders and the gifts we are donating here today is an indication that we have not forgotten you.

"I urge you to embrace the opportunity before you and become good citizens of this country."
