Nakasi High School is ready to showcase their production on curbing bullying at the Film Fiji and Fijian Made Film Awards at the Village 6 Vmax at Damodar City in Laucala Bay, Suva.

School teacher Waisake Mataki said their film titled Vengeance was about an orphan who resorted to poisoning after continual bullying at school.

The eight minute film unravels the plot of the girl’s solution to the high risk every day in school to those bullying her.

The scene is set in school and the message is on preventing bullying in school and never to seek revenge even when a person’s life is at risk.

The 10 student cast from NHS will  be competing against 24 schools from around the country.

There are 15 schools listed in the dance competition and 25 in the art division for the two-day event.

For Year 11 student, 15-year-old Levi Gaunavinka’s painting is the lone submission from the school for the Fiji Airways Art Awards with the theme Children of the Sun.

“My painting is based on a girl and her talents and I also drew the sun symbolising the source of light and it took me three days to work on the painting,” she said.

Levi paints during his spare time and is looking to pursue art as a career in the future.

The school is encouraging former scholars and supporters to vote for them.

Some of the awards up for grabs include Best Script, Best Actress and Actor, and Best Director.

The Film Fiji and Fijian Made Film Awards and the Fiji Airways Art Awards will be held on Friday.

Fiji Link Dance competition will be held on Saturday at the Vodafone Arena, Suva.

Tickets are on sale for only $2 at any Damodar Cinema outlet around Fiji.
