In what Nanuku Auberge Resort Fiji general manager Karen Taylor describes as a “wonderful example to make any parent proud of the way they have brought their children up” two teenagers from Wainiyabia Village, Serua, have potentially changed their lives simply by being honest.

The two boys, Sakiusa Kamicamica and Saviri Camatoga, stumbled across a valuable ‘Go Pro’ camera inadvertently dropped by one of the resort’s guests when stopping for refreshments while paddleboarding up the local river.

Doing the right thing the two boys, who had been given a ride on the paddle boards by the guests, returned the camera to the resort – much to the delight of the guest and staff.

Their reward – a hot chocolate, a box of Easter chocolates and a $30 voucher each.

Ms Taylor said Sakiusa and Saviri fully deserved their reward and their parents should be extremely proud of them.

“This is one of the best examples of honesty I have ever seen. The boys are a credit to their parents,” she said.

But best of all, and potentially paving the way to a wonderful future, the boys have been invited to work at the resort on their school holidays under the guidance of a senior staff mentor.

“We really look forward to helping these teenagers with their future – it will be a pleasure to teach them skills and knowledge that will help them develop a long term career,” Ms Taylor said.

“All they need to bring is their ‘good heart’ and ‘good mind’ and they will achieve great success.”
