Extending her knowledge

RETIRED primary school teacher Anaseini Nodroyaca is grateful she can continue to extend her knowledge and expertise to students in Tuvalu from next month under the Fiji Volunteer Service program.

The 60-year-old was farewelled with eight other retired teachers by Public Service Commission permanent secretary Parmesh Chand in Suva last week.

Mrs Nodroyaca, a former Yat Sen Primary School teacher, said she was at the peak of her teaching career when she retired three years ago.

"I was asking myself, where else can I use all the knowledge and experience that I have gained in my teaching career," she said.

"This volunteer program is exactly what I was looking for and I am excited.

"I am excited in imparting everything that I have gained in my teaching career to students in Tuvalu."

Mr Chand said the nine teachers would join 26 other volunteers who had already been sent to the region under the program.

"They (teachers) will provide their services to further enhance the capacities in the education sector in Tuvalu," he said.

"This batch of teachers should have been in Tuvalu in April. However, due to the fully-booked flights to Tuvalu, they will now depart next month on June 5."

He encouraged the volunteers to serve their country well and the country they were being sent to.
