School wins cool stuff

NADI'S Sangam Sadhu Kuppuswamy Memorial College was the first winners of the Goodman Fielder Crest Cool stuff for schools loyalty program.

The school received sporting equipment worth $780 last week.

Goodman Fielder Fiji Brand manager Etrina Simpson said the school received 20 balls — rugby, netball, soccer and volleyball.

"There will be more schools that will be rewarded and we are currently in the process of verifying tokens," she said.

"The response to this program has been very good and we have well over 200 schools that have registered. We are expecting more to register as we have removed the cut-off date for registrations."

Aside from prizes for schools, the program also allows for students to experience a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity of being part of a student exchange program to Australia.

"The student exchange program is for all schools that have registered and they are eligible to send two student nominees.

"The student nominees received from all registered schools will go into a pool of which 10 students will be selected in consultation with the Education Ministry.

"Together with two teacher chaperones, they will travel to Australia in August on an all-expense paid trip by Goodman Fielder and Crest Chicken, our locally-produced and grown chicken.

"The cultural exchange program is in partnership with SOS Unleashed."

Program organiser for the school Shalveen Reddy said the promotions had been very timely and response from students had been great.

Promotions for this program are expected to end by late August.
