Resort helps schools

ONE of Denarau Island's most popular holiday havens is working towards bringing positive changes to communities in its immediate vicinity and in the process assist in the education of employees' kids.

The Radisson Blu Resort recently launched its Adopt a School program with the aim of raising $50,000 over the next 12 months to improve sanitation, purchase computers and peripherals, provide scholarships and improve education.

"We have specifically chosen Nadi District and Ratu Navula as the two schools we will be adopting as a large share of our staff and landowning community's children attend these two schools," said Paul Halford, Radisson Blu's hotel manager and responsible business committee head.

"The Adopt a School program is focused on making the biggest impact we can with the funds we are raising, with a focus on sanitation, equipment required to teach the curriculum such as computers and material, scholarships and various pieces of technology to ensure the children get the best possible education.

"We wanted this as a long-term project and all funds would be spent through the resort for the benefit of the schools."
