STUDENTS of Somosomo District School travelled all the way from the beautiful island of Taveuni yesterday to pay a visit to the Fiji Times Ltd office in Suva.
Accompanied by their teachers and excited to be in the city, the students learned a great deal about the daily operations of the newsroom of the country's longest running newspaper.
Schoolteacher at Somosomo District School Tiko Vunicagi said the visit was a historic and an important one for the school.
"It is part of the students' class work. Every year we visit important places so that the children can learn and broaden their knowledge," Mr Vunicagi said.
Fiji Times Ltd financial controller Abhishak Narayan said the visit was an important one for the company as well.
He said the visit paved a way for the country's future journalists.
Somosomo District School was one of many schools that have visited the Fiji Times Ltd office during the school holidays.
And more schools interested in highlighting the importance of journalism in Fiji are encouraged to do so.
