HEAVY rain and wet weather in the Capital City failed to dampen the spirits of young children of The Learning Centre (TLC) in Suva during their party at the playground yesterday.
For many, it was a time to mingle with other parents and learn different cultures because of the multicultural nature of the school.
School chairperson Catherine Morgan said the annual event aimed to bring students and their families together in unity.
Most importantly, she said the event allowed parents, teachers and students to bond.
About 130 children attend the private, self-funded primary school that is dedicated to recognise and develop children's abilities and talents in a caring atmosphere well suited to learning and growing.
Ms Morgan said the school consisted of a wonderful mix of cultures that offered an invaluable education in itself.
Also seen at the event was a Pasifika and Asian food stall, which she said would strengthen and preserve their cultural diversity.
She said money raised from the event would go towards their major projects.
"We're hoping to raise $10,000 this year," Ms Morgan said.
The centre's small classes of no more than 18 students ensure that every child is valued as an individual and given opportunities to discover their strengths and flourish.
Surrounded by committed and understanding teachers, TLC constantly review their teaching practices as they continue to strive to meet Australia and New Zealand education standards.
