Parents and students of St Agnes Primary School  at  Mead Road, Nabua, turned up in numbers yesterday at its fun day.

“Our family fun day today is to strengthen family ties to boost the children’s education, and to raise funds to renovate our school block,” said assistant head teacher, Mele Baleilevuka.

Ms Baleilevuka said the fun day, after a lapse of three years, was also to get children into physical activities.

“Today’s event is another great display of unity and teamwork between the school management, parents, teachers, and the community,” said Minister for Youth and Sports, Laisenia Tuitubou.

Chief guest at the event, Mr Tuitubou thanked the support of the parents in regards to the education of their children and acknowledged the school that had contributed to the success of many who have walked through its corridors as a result of its nurturing environment.

“Learning is a lifelong process and as such, we all have a role to play in supporting the educational aspirations of our families, peers, and colleagues,” said Mr Tuitubou.

“This is absolutely a great idea to have this fun day not just for the kids, but for us parents to get to know each other better,” said a parent, Talei Joseph.

Another parent Reapi Dakuitoga said the event was a great way to come together to support the upgrade of the school facilities.

Parents were all in their own class tents selling cakes, pies, juice, clothes, books, roti parcels, and sandwiches to help raise funds for the school.

Saint Agnes Primary School has school roll of about 900 children from Year 1 to 8, and staff of 20.
