Know Your Parliament: Namosimalua
Secretary-General to Parliament, Viniana Namosimalua

Secretary-General to Parliament Viniana Namosimalua said it was crucially important that all Fijian students understand the roles and functions of Parliament.
She made the comment while closing the two-day Parliamentary education workshop at Holiday Inn Suva Tuesday.
The aim of the workshop was to train teachers on how to effectively approach parliamentary education, discuss and brainstorm ideas for students with parliament and assist parliamentary educators to develop educational resources and programmes.
“It is important that students access this knowledge that you have learnt and I know that the modules discussed in this workshop will set the scene of possibility of what we are doing in the classrooms and what more can we do,” Mrs Namosimalua said.
Our Parliament, being the pre-eminent institution of democracy endeavors to be representative and reflect as far as possible the social and political diversity of Fiji, to be open and transparent, accessible to the public and be accountable to the citizens,” she said.
Cathedral Secondary School teacher Jone Loga said the workshop has broadened the knowledge and skills of the teachers.
“The workshop was very enlightening and it has assisted us to know more about our Parliment and how it works and it sure will make a great impact on our students when they get to know of how the Parliament works,” Mr Loga said.
