Need for bula spirit

Torika Tokalau

STAFF members of Rahamtullah Khan Memorial School believe that getting involved in extra-curricular activities will help in the fight against non-communicable diseases.

The eight-member team, including two trainees, sent in their picture for The Fiji Times Bula Friday Office Challenge yesterday not only promoting the bula spirit but also making their stand on the fight against NCDs.

The staff members were seen holding fruits and vegetables from their school garden which included pineapples and breadfruit.

"By doing extra-curricular activities we can do our part in the fight against NCDs," said Sumandana, a staff member of the school.

"Fijians should not just show and promote the bula spirit everywhere they go but they should also show the world that health too is important. Fiji is a multiracial country and we have a bright future ahead of us if only we take small steps towards the bigger picture which is staying healthy to keep promoting the bula spirit."

The staff members of Rahamtullah Khan Memorial School were chosen winners in this week's The Fiji Times Bula Friday competition.

They walk away with $200.

"We didn't know we were going to win because we knew that other companies and organisations would be part of the competition too.

"But we thank The Fiji Times for bringing this competition to the public — we need more bula spirit in Fiji," Ms Sumandana said.

The school has a roll of 173 students and is located at Natadola Rd in Sigatoka.

The prizemoney will increase to $300 next week.
