ABOUT 300 children of Mulomulo Primary School in Nadi were blessed by tourists who visit their school every day.
School headteacher Salesh Sharma said foreign visitors who passed through were kind enough to sponsor underprivileged students who hailed from sugarcane farming backgrounds.
"Many of the students here are children of sugarcane farmers or labourers and we have seen that not many of them have a lot," he said.
"When these tourists come on these eco trip tours, they see the needs of the children and some of them want to help."
He said through visitors brought in by Highlands Scenic Eco Tours Fiji, the school established a system where tourists who wished to assist could pick from a wish list.
"We are grateful to the Highlands Scenic Tours because they have been helping us for more than a year now and through them many of our children have been able to receive free education, free stationery and exercise books."
Highlands Scenic Eco Tours Fiji co-director Howard Politini Jnr said the school visit was to give tourists a glimpse of what school life was like for rural children.
"We never ask them to help the children," he said.
"We just take them to the school as part of the scenic tour to experience life in a Fiji school.
"The assistance and financial help they offer is out of their own generosity.
"There's something special about the guests who have been kind enough to offer this kind of help to these schools and we are always very proud to be able to be a link between the school and the guests."
