Schools benefit from community program

ALTHOUGH Christmas was celebrated in December last year, this has not stopped Santa from making his visits to different schools in the Nadi area over the past week.

A statement from Radisson Blu Resort Fiji yesterday said their Santa visited five schools in Nadi — Champs on Wheels, Mulomulo Secondary School, Sabeto College and Nadi District Kindergarten — distributing sweets and other items to the students.

It said stationery, projectors, a multimedia speaker system and mini laptops were given to the various schools, while library books were being shipped and distributed to a few others.

Resort general manager John Bendtsen said with the first quarter well on its way, the responsible business committee at the Radisson Blu Resort Fiji had been busy with its "Adopt a School" voluntary program.

"The resort has also reached out in assisting Nawai Kindy donating materials worth $1325 to complete their kindy rest room," Mr Bendtsen said.

"To go back to the interior and give back to my community was an emotional experience because I know these kids will truly appreciate all the books and stationery we have donated," said Kelera Bale who works for the housekeeping department at the resort.

According to the statement Rukurukulevu Kindergarten in Sigatoka and Vunidawa District Kingergarten in Naitasiri were among the kindies nominated by staff who received a carton of school stationery this week.

"The responsible business team have had a very proactive and rewarding week reaching out to the community. This week alone 15 library cartons have been handed to Swami Vivekananda College in Nadi, 15 cartons shipped to Labasa and 15 more cartons ready to be shipped to Tuvalu next week," said Mr Bendtsen.
