HAVING a good background knowledge of Europe propelled St John Primary School, Wailoku, ahead of nine schools that participated in the Europe Day competition in Suva on Thursday.

Five students from the school won the Europe Day category two knowledge-based race competition.

They won a desktop computer for their school and five school bags with assorted items.

Their teacher Jimilai Cakacaka said he was proud of his team's correct answers to questions about Europe during the competition.

"The team, which consisted of two Class Eight students and three Class Six students, was preparing for one week so they can win the competition," Mr Cakacaka said.

"It was great seeing the students learn about other countries and actually enjoy themselves."

He said the students were interested to learn about Europe and how it had assisted Fiji over the years.

"We thank the European Union for organising the event and giving local students a chance to learn about other countries in Europe."

He said the students were excited about the competition and "to finally win is such a wonderful experience".
