SABETO College was recently visited by members of the Parliament Bus program last week as part of Government’s initiative to raise awareness about the works of the Parliament among rural communities and schools.
According to Principal of Sabeto College Mrs Shelly Imran, Sabeto College was the only secondary school in the Sabeto area, and she was thankful
that her school was considered for the Parliament Bus program.

“The Parliament Bus program was beneficial to the school as it helps us understand how Parliament works and the roles and function about the Parliament,” she said.

Similar sentiments were echoed by the head boy of Mulomulo Secondary School, Krishaal Minal Chand.

“In future, if we want to become a Member of Parliament, we now have a fair idea about how Parliament works,” he shared.

The Parliament Bus program later visited Narewa Village.

They are expected to travel to the Northern Division for schools and villages in the Cakaudrove district later this week.

Sabeto College had another reason to celebrate after their Year 10 student Priyanka Anjani Pillay took out the oratory contest held in Nadi to mark Commonwealth Day.

“Fourteen other secondary schools took part in the oratory contest. My orator was the youngest, a Year 10 student, and the last to speak,” Ms Imran said.

“Other principals were asking me about our orator but I replied that I’ve kept the best for the last. And I’m so overwhelmed that Priyanka proved my statement correct. “Thank you very much for organising such a contest whereby our students are exposed to the works of Parliament, empowered and since they are the future leaders, I feel that Priyanka, in the years to come, will be a very good Parliamentarian,” Mrs Imran said.
