Ratu Sukuna Park in Suva was a hive of activity on Tuesday as students from various schools portrayed climate change impacts with their costumes.

The progamme was part of the National Library Week celebration, which focused on climate change.

Close to 50 primary and secondary school students were part of the programme.

They spoke on various impacts of climate change and how it is affecting our lives and the country.

National Archives and Library Services of Fiji director Merewalesi Vueti said they were impressed with the participation of kindergarten and primary school students.

“This has shown that if we are allowing the information to be transpired to these age groups, then we can be adamant that we are creating and building a knowledgeable and strong society that can make good and sound decision for the betterment of individuals, families and communities, hence contributing positively to the Government’s strategic direction,” Mrs Vueti said.

The event, she said, was an effective way to advocate pressing issues that affected our daily lives.

“Most of all, the important part is the transpired of information and knowledge, allowing the learning process to take place, learning in a more creative and fun way. This is how the message will be grasped by children, especially kindergarten and primary school students,” she said.

“Targeting this age group is essential in building and creating a knowledgeable and strong society.”
