When it comes to social issues, Police need the support of the public.

This is the message Bhawani Dayal Arya College hopes to portray when it takes part at this year’s Kula Film Festival.

The Nasinu school’s Kula Film Festival co-ordinator, Priya Kumar Lal, said two students wrote the script for their film.

“When we watch TV news we see the different crimes that are happening in Fiji and it is not only the job of the Fiji Police Force to try and minimise or eradicate these problems,” she said.

“We, the public, need to work with the Fiji Police Force to make Fiji safe for everyone to live in.

“Our film focuses on how a girl is kidnapped and raped on her way to school and how this affects her and her family.

“When we listen to the news this is the very thing that is happening around us. It is about time we do something about it.”

Ms Lal said children must always feel safe wherever they are.

“The film basically gives a hint to everyone that those who are involved in these activities are taken to task and given proper penalties so that our children can feel safe,” she said.

“We need to be cautious all the time and must always ensure that our children are safe.”

The school has a roll of 851 students. The Kula Film Festival is on July 27-28.
