$9000 for school trip

AN educational tour was made possible through the simple fundraising efforts of a group of students last week.

A total of 58 students from three different primary schools in the Yasawa Group raised more than $9000 and managed to visit the Ministry of Information for the first time on November 20.

The students came from Naviti District School, Gaunavou Primary School and Ratu Apenisa Memorial School. Information Ministry permanent secretary Sharon Smith-Johns said the visit was welcomed and that such excursions broadened the knowledge base of young groups especially as they were away from the urban centres.

Teacher Hazrat Ali said the experience was a great one. "This is a wonderful educational opportunity for the students to actually see for themselves places they only learn about in school."
