Books for the future

Atasa Moceituba
Friday, July 18, 2014

PARENTS, teachers and guardians are needed to encourage children to read and to broaden their knowledge.

This is because they are leaders of tomorrow.

That was the message of Veiuto Primary School head teacher Mohammed Hanif, during the school's National Library Week celebration in Suva yesterday.

The students of Veiuto Primary School dressed up as different characters to commemorate the special day.

With the theme Lives change at your library, Mr Hanif said they had been trying to encourage students to read a lot of books.

Adding on he said their future began now and it was very important for parents and teachers to remind and inform their children to read a lot.
