MISS Fiji Drue Slatter is "on a roll" and is excited ahead of the final leg of the Miss South Pacific Pageant, says her chaperone in Samoa Aqela Cakobau.

She says Miss Slatter is upbeat and has been performing well in scheduled events.

Speaking from Samoa yesterday, she said Miss Slatter had just completed her presentation at the pre-pageant interview where she spoke on the topic of education, focusing specifically on the topic of Early Childhood Education.

Ms Cakobau said the Korotogo lass performed well at the pre-pageant interview.

"The pre-pageant interview was held this morning. Drue had earlier picked the topic of education and since it was such a broad topic she chose to speak on Early Childhood Education," Ms Cakobau said.

"She even spoke on traditional education and used the example of masi printing relating it to the teaching of geometry."

Miss Slatter was to have rehearsed for the final pageant show last evening.

"Last night (Thursday) she stayed up late in order to complete her presentation for the pre-pageant interview, it's been a very busy week here," she said.

A new winner will be crowned on December 8.
