Students clean up for award initiative

IN an effort to promote cleanliness in their communities, eight students of Holy Family Secondary School yesterday cleaned part of the Naseakula Rd tramline in Labasa.

Their teacher Atish Lal said the clean-up was part of the Duke of Edinburgh international award program in the school.

Mr Lal said students receive awards through the program doing community work and service. He said they chose the tramline area, one of the most littered, because it was often left untouched by members of the community.

"They will learn other skills like art and music complemented with physical recreation as in sports, and this year our students will learn to play cricket," he said.

Fourth former Atama Naivalu described the clean-up as an eye-opening project.

"I live close to these tramlines but attending the clean-up program has changed my view of things," he said.
