Students of Nasinu Secondary School were yesterday reminded of the alarming social issues facing our society.

They were given a reminder by the seven Vodafone Millennium Sinu Festival contestants who visited the school.

School principal Apisalome Vunisa thanked the contestants for taking their time out to visit the school and to raise issues which were prevalent to youths.

“We are trying to motivate our students as some of the contestants are students themselves. For them to come here and present the issues they are advocating makes a difference,” he said.

Mr Vunisa said the visit was also part of their partnership with Nasinu Town Council.

“This will also improve our relationship with the community of Nasinu so we can build it to be one of the best towns in Fiji,” he said.

The contestants shared with the students the various issues such as teenage pregnancy, school dropouts, drug abuse, violence against children and climate change.

The contestants were also treated to morning tea, entertainment.

The festival, a first in Nasinu, will raise funds towards supporting the Prime Minister’s National Disaster Relief and Rehabilitation Fund and the beautification of the town in line with its theme: ‘Let’s Unite to Beautify Nasinu’.

The Miss Nasinu, who will be crownedthis Saturday, will compete with other municipality queens for the Miss Fiji crown. Miss Fiji will later represent the country to the Miss South Pacific pageant.
