Torch team visits schools

THE 2014 Coca-Cola Games torch relay team visited schools in the greater Suva area yesterday.

The team started its journey at Gospel High School and visited Dudley High, John Wesley College, Laucala Bay Secondary, St Joseph's Secondary School and Ballantine Memorial School.

Principal of the soon-to-be closed Laucala Bay Secondary School Bill Fotofili said it was an honour to be part of the nationwide tour.

Government had decided to phase out the operations of Laucala Bay Secondary School by 2015.

"We have a small number of students since we are phasing out year after year so we will have a handful of athletes competing in the intermediate and senior grades," Fotofili said.

"The athletes are preparing well and hopefully we bag some gold medals this year."

The torch relay team will visit Kadavu today before visiting schools in Tailevu tomorrow.
