Uprising Fiji Resort prepared refreshments for hundreds of people who turned up for the Fiji Day celebration at Navua yesterday.

Sous chef, Ritesh Chand said it was the contribution from the resort.

“It is the first time Fiji Day is celebrated in Navua and it gave us a chance to give back to the community,” Mr Chand said.

“There were five staff members who worked on the refreshments today. We started preparing the refreshments from 7am till 9 am.

“We did not only prepare the refreshments, but also prepared the lunch for the chief guest and we hope he enjoyed it.”

Sera Vuetaki thanked Uprising Fiji Resort for preparing the refreshments.

“I came with my friends to celebrate Fiji Day. I have never tasted food from the resort and I am glad I did today,” Ms Vuetaki said.

“It is tasty, and it looked very presentable. I have always heard that they have tasty food, but today I got to taste it.”

Meanwhile, 40 students from Nakavu Primary School were part of the Vakamalolo dance and Meke-i-wau.

Teacher-in-charge Melania Lesumaisuva said the students were happy to be part of the celebration.

“For the first time the students from our school are taking part in the Fiji Day Celebration and it is a good exposure for them,” Ms Lesumaisuva said.

“When we told the students that they were to take part in the Fiji Day celebration they were very happy and excited because most of the time they stay in the village and today was an eye opener for them.” Edited by Percy Kean
