During its National Convention in Fiji last month, First National Real Estate used the occasion to officially open a covered utilities walkway for the Naidiri Bay Khalsa Primary School, funded by the First National Foundation – the charitable arm of the network.
The walkway will provide much needed shade during the summer and relief from torrential rain during the winter months. Here is a photo of me officially opening the walkway. It was a proud moment for me and my team.
Principal Mr Ifereimi Torosi, was deeply grateful for the walkway and the investment in Fiji’s education system through the supplies donated.
During the opening ceremony, over 100 member delegates, their families and children donated much needed school supplies ranging from a laptop computer, first aid essentials, plus a vast range of stationery including pens, pencils, books, and sporting equipment.
Mr Ifereimi Torosi informed me the donations would not only greatly assist the students but his school’s four teachers were looking forward to using the generous gifts to assist both the students’ welfare and improved educational processes.
The highlight of the ceremony was the interaction between the 30 Australian children and their Fijian counterparts, enjoying the occasion and doing what children do – having fun!
