Thank you Ministry of Education

Jokapeci Qalo-Qiolevu

Naitasiri

I wish to express my sincere gratitude to the Minister of Education and all his hardworking staff members for making available on their website past years’ exam papers as well as answers and Examiners Reports for external exams.

I am not sure how long this has been available because I’ve just found out after downloading my daughter’s Year 10 Commerce paper over the weekend. Nevertheless I am very grateful for this wonderful initiative.

These are very valuable tools for both our children and us as parents.

It will definitely enable us to assist our children more effectively with revision this term.

God bless and keep up the awesome work you are doing MOE!! :)  :)  :)

 

 

Team Fiji

Firstly, I wish to commend Fiji Sun for keeping Fijians posted, during the Rio Olympics via its colourful pictures and apt narrations of the various sports. Vinaka.

I was overwhelmed with the Prime Minister’s address during the celebrations on Monday 22/8/2016.

I request Fijians to read his address F/S 23/8 if you have missed it.

I wish to take my cue from his comments “But some people simply weren’t team players.”

I ask the various Ministers, are you a team player?

If yes, bravo! If not, it’s time to get our “act together”.

He goes on to say: “So Team Fiji is starting to play as it should – giving everyone on a level playing field a go and as we score more points for our nation, we are determined to continue to leave no one behind.

“We are taking the marginalised, the elderly, the sick and the disabled with us.”

Perfect. Toso Viti!

Whilst we are celebrating the great rugby victory in the Olympics, and why not, can I request the Government to also take the new teacher recruits, who are marginalised on board too?

Can the Government honour them by giving them their rightful graduate salary of $21,438.00 rather than $12,360.00?

Can we put them on a “level playing field” with their fellow colleagues, please?

 

 

 Ryan the man

It is a small wonder if the Englishman, Ben Ryan had been credited to give our ‘noble banner blue’ longevity; dignified by the famous victory against Great Britain in the final of the Olympics rugby sevens final in Rio.

The many thousands who watched witnessed the Noble Banner Blue at every rugby sevens game with the patriotism and passion from the Fijian fans.

Our people flew our nation’s colours with pride; the colour and the insignia of the flag are known the world over.

Peni Raiyani has salvaged our long association with GB.

Perhaps the most significant factor which may account for the flag to stay was the satisfactory finals of the rugby sevens at the Olympics.

An elder commented: ‘If I die tomorrow; I will let every Fijian who has passed on [God bless their soul] know that the Fiji sevens team has won the gold medal and the current Fiji flag has stayed’.

 

 

Ben Ryan

Those two stooges under the coconut tree are absolutely true that ‘Ryan leaves big shoes to be filled’ (Editorial Cartoon by Paul Dorin; FS 24/8).

I’m sure they are not star gazers but mused audience who are also confused of what the future may bring to our sevens team.

It’s certainly not an earthquake but the stampeding of people who celebrated with our gladiators.

I think the shoes are for someone who knows Ryan’s level of performance.

For me its either Chris Cracknell, Osea Kolinisau or Nacanieli Cawanibuka or a combination of them.

The other option is to get Mike Friday over.

Certainly Ben has done many mighty works for Fijian sevens.

The gratitude and humility demonstrated by this man will be hard to find in a coach.  The trust he has earned from the people of Fiji is unequalled.

He has had many people smile after the destruction of Tropicla Cyclone Winston

Go with our good wishes and blessings Ben.
