Update: 2:43PM PARLIAMENT is a broad term, but now I know the different divisions it has, what it does daily and most importantly, its role in making laws for our country and representing the views of all Fijians.

Year 12 student, Pita Waqavou of St Vincent College in Tailevu said this following the 'Parliament Bus' programme at the school last week.

"As a student in a rural school, I am thankful to the team for bringing Parliament down to our level," Pita said.

Meanwhile, Social Science Teacher, Flora Luvuwaqa said the presentation by the Parliament team was beyond description.

"Today was a very good learning experience for all the kids, not only those that take Social Science but also those that take Science and those who know that they're part of this country.

"This programme has instilled into them that their voices too can be heard in Parliament," she said.

The Parliament team also visited Nasinu Muslim College where they educated about 500 students and their teachers about the roles and functions of Parliament, among other important information.
