Kaila! Fun day a 'success'

Sunday, January 13, 2008

Hundreds of children flocked to the Marist Brothers High School grounds to be part of the first fun day organised by the Kaila! club newspaper.

The event was for registered members of the club, who are weekly readers and supporters of the Kaila! Newspaper.

Fiji Times Limited marketing coordinator Foto Ledua said since the establishment of Kaila! Newspaper, there had been a huge number of supporters so a Kaila! Club was formed to give readers and followers the opportunity to mingle and socialise with one another.

"We organised a fun day for all our Kaila! Readers and members of the club," she said.

"There are many others who have come to register and show their interest in joining the club.

"Most of the children are between 8-18 years old. We try to encourage reading and literacy among readers." Ms Ledua said the sponsors organised promotional activities for the children and supporters.

The Suva Fire Authority's fire and safety department were part of the event and organised 'knock-out' games for the children.

Fire and safety department manager Timoci Vakaruru said they were asked to facilitate the games which involved learning fire safety skills.

One of the parents present, Sophia Ali, said she drove from Lautoka for the fun day and was very happy to be part of the event.

"I came with my twin daughters and niece because they wanted to join the Kaila! Club."
