Parents reminded of roles

PARENTS and guardians in Macuata have once again been reminded of their roles as supervisors of their children's education.

The reminder was sounded by Agriculture, Fisheries and Forests and Rural and Maritime Development and National Disaster Management Minister Lieutenant Colonel Inia Seruiratu during the government roadshow in Nadogo yesterday.

"There is abundance of natural resources in Macuata Province that can be utilised to improve the standard of living and the quality of life of its rural communities," he said.

"The onus is on us to use our time wisely and make the most of the opportunities available to us. To the parents and the guardians, find some quality time to spend with your children.

"I say this in view of the many children and youths dropping out of school or being on the wrong side of the law."

Lt-Col Seruiratu said the government provided free education for the first time this year and children must take advantage of it.

"There are also opportunities available within our educational institutions that provide other forms of training and this can assist children to set up their own business in areas such as agriculture and fisheries to name a few."

Students from the various schools in northern Macuata were also part of the show.
