With the first term of school starting on Monday Prime Minister Voreqa Bainimarama has encouraged students returning to school to make 2020 the best year yet and put their heads down to study hard, participate in sports and extracurricular activities and try something new.
Bainimarama says with the start of 2020 comes the beginning of a new academic year and has extended his wishes to all students setting out a new chapter in their journey of learning and discovery.
Bainimarama has offered a particularly special welcome to all newbies in schools, those students entering kindergarten and Year 1 for the first time who look to Monday with both excitement and a little bit of nervousness.
Bainimarama adds this year students should find their passion, and pursue it relentlessly.
He is pleading with the students not to let the opportunities at their feet go to waste.
He adds this is why his government has always invested in education as a way to progress our country as a whole and to uplift Fijian families and communities across the nation.
