The Minister for Youth and Sports, Laisenia Tuitubou, and his ministry entourage visited the Richmond Methodist High School yesterday.

While addressing primary and secondary school staff and students of Richmond, Mr Tuitubou reiterated the ministry’s stance on youth development.

“Most of you students here at Richmond are within the mandated age group classified as youths being from 15 to 35 and the ministry is therefore responsible for your nurturing and development as young people,” he said.

“Youths make up a large portion of the country’s population and that is why developing young people in this early stage is important because youths are responsible for the future of the country.”

Minister Tuitubou emphasised to high school students of the significance of joining youth groups in their communities.

“I am proud to say that most of the youth groups we have visited so far are running successful income generating projects as a direct result of following the ministry’s programmes and I urge students who are in the youth age group to either join or start up a youth group of your own as it will help in your growth as young people,” he said.

Richmond Methodist High School vice-principal Eneriko showed his appreciation to the ministry delegation for the timely visit.

“We are immensely grateful and honoured that the minister and his delegation took time out from their busy schedule to visit the students here at Richmond,” Mr Eneriko said.

“It is my hope that the students will take to heart the words of advice by the Honourable Minister in order to inspire and also act as a means of motivation in their journey as young people.”

The minister was also on hand to donate basic sporting equipment to school management of both Richmond primary and secondary.
