Ministry of Employment, Productivity and Industrial Relations Permanent Secretary, Salaseini Daunabuna yesterday welcomed the seven volunteer teachers who had been engaged in secondary school teaching assignments with the Republic of the Marshall Islands (RMI) for the last two years.

The assignments were made through the ministry’s Fiji Volunteer Service (FVS).

Ms Daunabuna thanked the teachers for the successful tasks carried out and for proving to be good ambassadors for Fiji while in the RMI.

The Permanent Secretary highlighted that two of the teachers will be privately contracted by the RMI Education Department for the 2016-2017 academic year, adding that the remaining five teachers will be re-engaged by the RMI Government as volunteer teachers.

Team leader Vaseva Baba highlighted that they were fortunate to have been chosen to be part of the Fijian Volunteer Service programme.

“I wish to thank the Fijian Government and the Employment Ministry most sincerely for giving us the opportunity to be engaged in this extremely worthwhile exercise,” Ms Baba said. She also said that volunteering her time for the past two years was deeply rewarding and enriching.”

The Minister for Employment Semi Koroilavesau, who is currently in the maritime region promoting employment opportunities, conveyed his gratitude to the families of the volunteer teachers for their continuous support over the last two years.

He anticipates a continuation of this support in the years ahead.
