SJSS to interpret theme in annual concert

SAINT Joseph's Secondary School will this year put on their annual concert based around the theme "Be the change within: Let us together strive to create a rainbow community of service in love".

Principal Sister Genevieve Loo said it took her six months to come up with this theme for the concert where students would have an opportunity to interpret it.

She added that this was also a way of conveying the message behind the theme to the audience.

According to Sr Genevieve, last year's theme — which reflected on the liberation and empowerment of an individual — was not enough, so change from within a person was necessary to avoid being enslaved to the negative impacts of modern progress.

"I can stop it by being an agent of change for others and the community and taking responsibility within myself," she explained.

"The developing of leadership skills, making use of available resources, creativity and the process of learning to take responsibility are some of the values that are inherited by the girls."

Kiti Seninawanawa, a Year 13 student, said change from within was essential in order to be a positive influence in society.

The concert runs from July 29 — July 31 at the civic centre, Suva.
