Pre-school students will march through the city today to advocate on the importance of childhood education in Fiji.
Early Childhood Teachers Association president Truby Aliti said it would be their first national march.
“Before celebrations were held in different branches but this year, since the association has been registered for the first time, we are trying to plan for a bigger celebration,” Ms Aliti said.
“After the opening all preschool has a programme of its own whether in branches or individual schools.”
Ms Aliti said they would be advocating on this year’s theme which is Quality Childhood Quality Future.
“We chose this theme because the teaching practices should be of quality, so this is one way to encourage our teachers so they can put quality in their classrooms,” she said.
“The purpose of the march is that we want to highlight issues and it is a form of awareness, so we are expecting different branches to be here.”
She said there were 15 schools from Suva and the other schools from Nausori, Beqa, Naitasiri, Namosi, Tailevu and Navua.
