IT was an early Christmas for students of Nalawa Central School in Ra when they visited the Fiji Times office yesterday.
For majority of the students it was their first trip the capital city and the visit to Fiji's major newspaper was a dream come true.
About 60 students accompanied by parents and teachers learnt how the newspaper was printed and the work associated with it. Assistant headteacher Koini Marama said the tour was part of their end-of-the-year program and exposed the students to developments taking place in the city.
She said the students were excited to visit the Village Six Cinemas, the Olympic Pool and the Fiji Times as part of their two-day program.
"Most of these students have never been to Suva and this has been a great opportunity for them to learn about the different places in Fiji," Ms Marama said. "What's more exciting about this trip is visiting the Fiji Times."
Seven schools visited the Fiji Times complex this week.
