PRIME Minister Commodore Voreqe Bainimarama called on members of the military to spend more time with their families.

During the commander's first parade at Queen Elizabeth Barracks in Nabua, Commodore Bainimarama spoke about the need to take care of their family's welfare.

He said with the new academic year starting today, parents had an important role to play in their child's education.

"Classes are to begin sometimes this week, and I hope that all our children are well prepared for the new school year," he said.

"As we all know, government has now taken care of their school fees; this does not mean that parents should have a lax attitude towards their education.

"Parents play a vital role, as they are still responsible for their child's wellbeing."
