Memorial stone

I am so glad to see the war memorial stone has got a permanent place at Koroivolu ground here in Nadi.

I was at the agriculture show when I saw the army personal working on the site.

During past Bula Festivals and other functions held at the ground, the memorial stone was left scattered with all kinds of rubbish around it.

This permanent site will be the resting place for all those who sacrificed their lives and also a good tourist attraction.

To the RFMF personnel, thank you so much for the work done and to the people of Nadi, let us show some respect, take pride and look after this special monument.

Engraved on the stone — Fiji to the fallen 1914/1916 1939/1945 1952/1956.

May they rest in peace.

Thank you

I would like to thank Reshmita Lata, a teacher at Nasinu Muslim College who took the initiative to find out the problems faced by one of her students, namely Ratu Sairusi Ragogo, 19 years old from Rukua Beqa.

Not only did she go to the root of the problem, she also came up with a solution to provide him a place to live with her family.

She also guided him throughout.

This is something great of this teacher.

She is an example to other teachers on how teachers can identify students' problems.

She has changed the life of this young man.

I feel she should be recognised with a medal from the President of Fiji.

Loans scheme

A work colleague would like to show her appreciation towards TELS.

Her son who is having the opportunity to be part of this scheme has really seen the benefits and is very thankful.

His mum wants to acknowledge and appreciate the present Government as well.

She is very happy with their services all around.

She says no other government has done so much for our country and its people compared with the present Government.

She conveys her big vinaka to the authorities.

Safe festive season

The Fiji Times editorial (23/11/17) alerts all parents, teachers and concerned authorities for a safe and rewarding festive season, including school holiday related activities.

Traditional celebrations with various related activities, treats and drinks, at times turn out to be more expensive than anticipated.

Whatever way we celebrate or spend the school holiday, safety of one and all should be paramount.

We all learn from yesterday, live for today and hope for tomorrow with our personal resolutions for the new year in 2018.

Merry Christmas and a happy New Year!
