INSPIRING imagination in children and creating a supportive learning environment.

This is the main aim of the Natadola-based InterContinental Fiji Golf Resort and Spa that treated three schools to newly painted kindergartens, inspirational feature walls and brand new floor mats as part of the resort's Community Care fund project.

Rahmatullah Khan Memorial School, Tuva Primary School and Malomalo Primary School stand to benefit from this program.

InterContinental Fiji Golf Resort and Spa general manager Scott Williams says the resort looks forward to continued works with schools in the Natadola Bay community.

"The Malomalo school tour is one of the 'In The Know' experiences we offer here at the resort and we're thrilled to see our resort guests actively engaging with our projects to help create a brighter future for these communities," he said.

"Each kindergarten chose a different theme to decorate their walls.

"Tuva Indian School chose a mural theme of numbers, letters, words and visual games while Rahmatullah Khan Memorial School chose to have their playroom painted as an 'Underwater Wonderland'.

"Malomalo Primary School chose a 'Jungle Safari' theme for their mural."

Local artist Timoci Sokoiwasa was the talent behind the murals and he completed all three themed murals in two weeks.

During a recent visit to Malomalo Primary School, a guest of the resort donated brand new pairs of shoes to each child to begin the school year.
