Tour of the Capital City

Mere Naleba
Saturday, August 16, 2014

THE overwhelming support from teachers, parents of students of Yale District School in Kadavu allowed 30 students to travel 100kilometres to the Capital City marking the end of term two and the start of the school holidays.

The students of Yale District School had the chance to visit The Fiji Times newsroom, but what set these students apart was the garlands worn by students.

The garlands were made from the well-known vono ni matari a plant said to have been first found at Yale Bay in Kadavu.

Schoolteacher Viliame Buatavatava said the students and teachers had been raising funds for the Suva tour since the beginning of the year and managed to raise $5000 for the six-day trip.

"It has been a very educational trip for us, unfortunately not all the students could make it on this trip, six of our students are not here with us," Mr Buatavatava said.

He said the students had been visiting prominent landmarks in the Capital City.
