Sugar crisis

Manoa Kaleca,  Nailuva

Can someone tell me what is happening to our sugar industry?

Why are they incurring a loss of profit?

Can something be done before it is too late?

 

Kindy graduation

Neelz Singh,  Lami

Time to shine Namosi as Wainiyavu Kindergarten students graduated from their prizegiving ceremony on Monday, November 21.

A very proud moment as the crowd applauded and cheered as some of their students were on centre stage to receive their certificates.

Despite the odd conditions of the teaching environment and improper facilities, I salute the teachers, parents and community for the support at large.

Everyone had big ‘bula’ smiles as the chief guest arrived on such a lovely sunny day.

To encourage and boost their moral support we need to develop a holistic approach of education from desired and respective fields and the government of the day is trying very hard to provide all amenities so that rural schools are just as equipped as urban ones.

Congratulations to all who graduated and may God bless them in their knowledgeable journey to Year One. Vinaka.

Animals too need help

Jenny Moxham, Australia

It’s heartening to see the effort being put into stamping out violence on women.

(Churches’ move will bolster anti-violence campaign, FS 22/11) But there’s another group of individuals who are likewise victims of violence and who are also in need of our help.

Like women, they are totally vulnerable and powerless to protect themselves. I’m referring to animals – particularly, farmed animals.

Each year, a staggering 65 billion farmed animals are violently killed for their flesh, eggs and milk.

The majority of them are subjected to agonising mutilations and confined in a manner that causes intense physical and mental suffering.

Given that animal products are not necessary in our diet – it’s actually healthier to avoid them – this violence to animals is clearly no more justifiable than violence to women.

The White Ribbon campaign calls on men to vow never to be violent to women. A Scarlet Ribbon campaign – scarlet to represent the blood of the victims – could call on men and women alike to vow never to be violent to animals.

The most important step you can take to end this violence is to switch to a cruelty-free vegan diet.
