Students lead by example

STUDENTS of Davuilevu Methodist Primary School, Nausori have taken the initiative to become responsible Fiji citizens by keeping their compounds clean.

This was demonstrated to these students at their inaugural World Environment Day celebrations with the theme Raise your Voice, not waste level yesterday.

Teacher Fane Saumaibulu said they chose the theme because they wanted it to suit their context.

"We want to bring it closer to our environment and school context," Mrs Saumaibulu said.

"Every day, we see waste around us and that's a real problem in Fiji today so we are trying to empower and make awareness to our parents on how they can be role models to our children and to manage their litter at home. This is our first environment week celebration and we thought of doing a fashion show for these students so we can engage their parents, so we share knowledge and how to utilise especially in terms of art."

Students dressed up in traditional iTaukei costumes as well as garbage bags, old newspaper cuttings and empty plastic cuttings to celebrate the occasion.
