Our Government has made their intentions clear that equality of accessibility of education is paramount.

This remark was made by the Minister for Education, Heritage and Arts, Mahendra Reddy, during the Nehru Day and Nehru Memorial Primary School golden jubilee celebration at the school in Suva yesterday.

Nehru Memorial Primary School was established in 1966, celebrating both its 50th anniversary and Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru’s 127th birthday.

Pandit Nehru or Chacha (uncle) Nehru was the first Prime Minister of India and led India from its establishment as an independent nation in 1947 until his death in 1964.

Mr Reddy said: “We firmly believe that the most important investment for securing a prosperous future is to invest in our children.”

He quoted Pandit Nehru who said: “Children are like buds in a garden and should be carefully and lovingly nurtured, as they are the future of the nation and the citizens of tomorrow.”

Mr Reddy said Government was focused to ensure they promote quality education and produce well rounded citizens with the best values, who contribute towards the bright future of Fiji.

“I want to assure you all that our Government is committed towards delivering quality and accessible education to all Fijians regardless of their socio-economic backgrounds. And we will not leave any stones unturned to achieve this.

“Our vision of accessible and quality education can only be achieved if we all get together in the aim to provide the best for our children; the future of our beloved Fiji,” Mr Reddy said.

He said the Bainimarama Government had committed itself to invest persistently into education.

“We have taken on the challenge that we are going to root out all inequalities at its inception and here we wish to root out any hindrance that our children may face to have access to quality education,” Mr Reddy said.
