Fifty-two students from Ratu Finau Secondary School in Lakeba, Lau, were happy to visit Parliament on Monday as part of their educational tour in the capital city.

This was the first time, for most of them together with their teachers, had set foot inside Parliament.

Assistant Principal Roneel Prasad said the visit was encouraging and motivational for their students.

“Our students are so fortunate to visit Parliament and learn how Parliament operates from the Civic Education team,” Mr Prasad said.

“We find difficulty in watching live Parliamentary sessions due to the changes in Fiji One TV but now we better understand the processes in Parliament,” Mr Prasad said.

He also encouraged other schools to visit Parliament whenever they visit Viti Levu for an excursion trip.

“If you have an opportunity to come to Suva for an excursion, don’t miss Parliament House,” he said.

“The manner in which the Civic Education organised the tour and their briefing is very informative.

“At first, we had this fear of Parliament as a sacred place. But now after the presentation, our fear has gone and we appreciate that it’s an open Parliament.”

The students had visited the Reserve Bank of Fiji earlier in the day and were planning to visit the Fiji Broadcasting Corporation later.

They were accompanied by six teachers and a representative from the Parents and Teachers Association.

The group will return to Lakeba next week.
