PARENTS and guardians at Kalekana settlement have been told that there are no excuses for not sending their children to school.

Kalekana mobile play centre vice president Apimeleki Koiniu made the statement during the graduation ceremony of 33 children from the early childhood learning centre in Lami on Tuesday.

The graduates are ready to enter Class One next year.

Mr Koiniu told the parents, guardians and friends that it was important to support their children's education.

With the bus fare scheme and books being provided by the government, he said there was no excuse.

All parents and guardians need to do is prepare their lunch, Mr Koiniu said.

He encouraged parents to support the education of their children.

The kindergarten was built through funding from Save the Children Fiji. Representatives of the organisation were also present at the graduation ceremony.

The graduates entertained guests with songs, reciting poems and a meke.

They were later hosted to a morning tea by parents.
