HOSTING the inaugural open day at Lautoka Muslim College in 2012 gave an opportunity for the principal and staff to perfect the quality of exhibitions displayed to students.
And Lautoka Muslim College principal Virendra Sharma said after partnering with government agencies and stakeholders, another open day held at the school grounds in Lautoka yesterday was a definite success.
"We wanted to improve on the quality in terms of exhibitions that we delivered to the our students as well as those from other schools," he said.
"In total, we had 12 primary and eight secondary schools attend the open day.
"It was a great avenue for all to come together."
Various stakeholders including the Health and Education ministries, University of the South Pacific, Fiji National University, the mineral resources department and biosecurity office took part in the open day.
"We were very fortunate to see the permanent secretary of Education, the divisional education officer and principal education officer.
"Our theme was culture of self-belief and this was to give students opportunities to express themselves.
"This has also built the confidence of parents and stakeholders in our school.
"We have already started work on the open day next year and we have been advised by officials from the ministry to look at another direction."
He said they would work with other schools in Lautoka for the open day next year.
