The Vunimono Sanatan Dharam Primary School in Nausori aims to set career paths for its students at an early age.

To this end the school sends out its Year Four students yearly to visit various organisations on a day excursion trip to get a glimpse of how these organisations operate.

Yesterday 70 Year Four students, two teachers and two parents visited the Fiji Sun head office in Walu Bay, Suva, as part of their excursion trip.

Assistant headteacher Parveen Kumar said they wanted their students to choose a certain career at an early age and work towards it.

“We think it’s very important because when choosing a career at an early age they can make a decision and work towards it rather than wait until the end of high school and then figuring out what to do in their lives,” Mr Kumar said.

He said they were visiting the Fiji Sun as part of their social science and English studies.

“Students learn about the newspaper, television and radio and other mass media and we want them to come and actually see for themselves how news are collected and processed.”

He said the students also visited the Republic of the Fiji Military Forces headquarters in Nabua and the Naval Base in Walu Bay, Suva.

The group had lunch at the Thurston Gardens and later visited the My Suva Picnic Park at the Nasese foreshore before returning to school yesterday afternoon.
