A student and his school headteacher from Matuku in the Lau Group revealed that the Fiji Sun was among teaching resource materials on the island.

Among teaching aid, references and library books to educate students are copies of the Fiji Sun at Ratu Mocevakaca Memorial School, at Yaroi Village.

The newspapers are great source of information, said the school headboy, Elia Keleto. He was among 12 students and their headteacher, Tupou Maiwalawala, who visited the Fiji Sun head office at Walu Bay, Suva yesterday to learn how the newspaper is produced.

“This is the first time for me to visit the Fiji Sun and we are eager to learn how the newsroom operates,” Keleto said.

“Reading is one of my hobbies and I enjoy reading the sports section, especially news on rugby,” the Year Eight student said.

He said the Fiji Sun helped him improve his English and he learned new things.

Ms Maiwalawala said it was the first time for most of the students to come to Suva and they were eager to visit the Fiji Sun office.

“Back in our island, we don’t have newspapers supplied on a daily basis, so whenever I come to Suva, I collect old newspapers and take it back for our school library,” Ms Maiwalawala said.

This, she said, helped students in improving their English and their school projects.

“I have been teaching for the past eight years and I believe this type of educational trips will help students gain more knowledge and confidence,” she said.

The students are in Viti Levu to attend the National Scout Jamboree at Matavatucou, Tailevu next week.
