Pollution awareness

Salaseini Moceiwai
Thursday, August 14, 2014

SCHOOL teacher Shahista Khan believes that water pollution shouldn't only be taught in classrooms, instead it should be known wherever possible.

The 21-year-old lass from Vunivau in Labasa says such pollution should be a topic of discussion at home, school, social events and even during informal conversations in villages and rural settings.

Ms Khan is among nine contestants vying for the queen's crown in the upcoming Vodafone Festival of the Friendly North.

She will advocate on water pollution.

"Personally, I believe that this week-long festival will be an opportunity for me to raise awareness about water pollution," Ms Khan said.

The carnival starts next Saturday.
