Six-year old aspires to be an army officer

It was a proud moment for 53-year-old Luisana Valonisiga to witness her grandson, Akaia Turaga, who graduated from Bethel Crusade Kindergarten in Vunika, Labasa yesterday.

Ms Valonisiga of Vuo Village outside Labasa Town was in tears when Akaia said ‘vinaka Nau’ (thank you granny) and kissed her on the forehead.

She said she had raised Akaia ever since his parents separated.

“Raising a grandson is challenging but I am thankful that by grace of God I was able to send him to preschool and next year he will be in Year One at Vuo Primary School,” Ms Valonisiga said.

Six-year-old Akaia said he was very happy seen himself wearing a black graduation gown and cap.

“I will study hard and one will become an army officer,” he said.

Akaia was among nine other classmates who graduated.

Chief guest Heather Challis of Waurn Ponds Community Church, Geelong, in Australia said pre-school education was significant.

“Teachers play a very essential role in delivering information to these kids and witnessing a number of activities presented by the kids I am happy to say the teachers have done their job very well,” Mrs Challis said.

Bethel Crusade Kindergarten manager Samson Jeet said the school was among the seven preschools established by the Christian Revival Crusade International Church in Fiji.
