SIX proud Fiji Muslim League community kindergartners showed off their certificates and brown gowns as they graduated to primary education last week.

The Save the Children Fiji (SC Fiji) facilitated kindergarten at Bayview Heights was founded in 2002 as a playgroup program to cater for children in nearby settlements which receives a lot of child-centered attention from the Early Childhood Education (ECE).

Inivereti Ratu, a teacher, said she was proud the children had learnt many things at the centre which they would take with them to primary school.

"They have learnt how to look after themselves and be independent as well as become educationally stronger with the basic skills that they have learnt," she said.

The children have been involved in many activities at the centre including learning their alphabets, shapes, names, colours, movements and learning to play with blocks and Lego.

Many parents, guardians and nearby residents lent their support to the ECE and took part in the ceremony.
