PM talks values at rally

MORE than 800 young boys participated in the Lautoka District Annual Scouts' Rally which began on Thursday and ends today at Fenner Park.

The celebrations were boosted by the fact that the event was also part of the centenary celebrations for the scouting movement in the country.

Speaking at the opening of the rally, Prime Minister Rear Admiral (Ret) Voreqe Bainimarama challenged the Scouts to use the values they had learned to benefit the country.

"Here in Fiji, the Scout movement has never been more relevant. Your values are the values we aspire to as a nation; to be fit and healthy, to be good citizens, to think of others and not just ourselves and above all, to serve."

Of the 26 scouting districts in Fiji, Lautoka is the biggest and the only one which hosts Scouts participation and achievement badges in the country.
