THE struggles the students of Wainimakutu Primary School face daily has helped them to succeed in life.

And going back to school every new school term is what these young children look forward to every school year.

Yesterday, 14 children accompanied their parents to travel to Suva for their last-minute school shopping.

Mother, Mere Tuilau said they left their village as early as 4am in Namosi so they would reach Suva in time to do their shopping before returning around midday.

"This is a normal routine for us and our children. We travel to Suva a day before school starts to finalise all our shopping before they start another new school term," she said.

"It is always wonderful to get to spend our last moments together before another school year starts again."

Mrs Tuilau said education was an asset therefore they would ensure their children got the best as far as education was concerned.

Term two of school resumes today.
