THE Vunitogoloa Students Association in Rakiraki, Ra, organised their first Education Day to help their students be aware of the importance of education.

The day is envisioned to enlighten the minds of every child, parents and the people in different communities at Vunitogoloa.

With the theme "REMA" in Education (meaning light in the Rakiraki dialect), the Education Day was not only for the students but was another way of bringing the community together.

Primary, secondary school and tertiary students were part of the one-day career expo.

Various institutions, professional bodies and employment bodies were part of the Education Day to display their line of services and works that will give the children of Vunitogoloa a vision on what education can do for them.

Vunitogoloa Students Association president Josefa Tale said the career expo was an eye-opener for the students and it helped boost their morale.

"The Education Day will reignite the determination in the minds of the young people to focus on education and its importance in making them future successful individuals in their families, their village, province and the Fijian society as a whole."

He said the day also showcased the sons and daughters of Vunitogoloa who were graduates and prospective graduates to share their knowledge.

"We want them to share their testimonies with the children and the people of Vunitogoloa the power of education to future prosperity and success."
