Teacher’s sweat

Maria Tavaga,       

Ba

Are teachers’ not human beings to perspire or sweat?

Do parents also sweat when trying to teach their children the right things to do in their lives after constant counselling or inflicting corporal punishments?

Parents need to know and understand many factors that contribute to teachers’ perspiring in the classroom.

Some of the factors are:

1.   Small classroom with a huge class size.

2.   Constant counselling sessions with children on their constant misbehaviors which takes time away from normal teaching hours.

3.   Incomplete homework whereby parents are supposed to be sweating their hearts out in guiding their children to complete the given tasks from school.

4.     Field trips or excursions whereby these so called perspiring teachers take the extra mile to supervise children to understand the practical side of theories learned in class.

Why should all teachers’ be picked upon when perspiring in school?

Parents, please be mindful of the factors that make these hardworking teachers who provide your children with a bright future.

These factors are only few of the many reasons why these teachers perspire in and out of the classroom. Why don’t we all work together to see that not only the teachers’ sweat but the parents and children also sweat in learning a thing or two for a prosperous Fiji.

Boxing points

Dhirendra Prasad,

The world’s best boxing referee (supposedly) with his judges made their decision.

They were the professionals delegated to show the world what real judging is about.

Now the decision has been made.

What I am interested (though they may have no interest) is the judging rubric that was used.

I am not questioning their decision but it would be interesting to see what they saw when compared to what we saw.

Though we may not be professionals we wuld like to konw what professionals see in such fights that leads up to piling up of points by boxers.

By the way, I have been a follower of boxing both local and international for the last three decades and I have knowledge of some hometown decisions made by professional judges in the past.

Another question one needs to ask is how much do the referee and the judges get paid? Are their bank balances checked or monitored after such fights?

Do they also declare their assets and liabilities before taking up such roles and are they being followed up later on?

Perhaps it is time now to do so if this is not being one currently.

Nadroga Rugby Union President Jiko Matawalu’s words that they would rather have their top players get overseas contracts or employed by the Security Forces for their future financial security even if it means Nadroga losing their rugby titles speaks volume of the man and the type of leadership Nadroga Rugby has.

Vinaka Nadro.
