Bureau staff enjoy day out with family

ABOUT 140 staff members from the Bureau of Statistics and their family members came together yesterday for their first work fun day.

The staff members took part in numerous activities at the Suva Grammar School grounds including tug of war competitions, some volleyball and basketball games and other sports activities all in an attempt to get the major trophy.

Government statistician Epeli Waqavonovono told this newspaper that although it was the first time for the Bureau, it was encouraging to see such a good turnout.

"There are five divisions within the Bureau and so today (yesterday) they're divided up into these divisional teams and all competing for the trophy," Mr Waqavonovono said.

"This is a very good exercise for team-building and it's also a really good way to give the employees the opportunity to meet outside of the office.

"We knew that a lot of other organisations had done this and so we wanted to try it as well and it has been a great day."
