We all, as Fijians, should stay focused on roles  as  individual members of our society, as parents, as teachers, as community members, and as employers and employees, says Attorney-General Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum.

Speaking at the Tamavua Primary School’s prizegiving yesterday, Mr Sayed-Khaiyum reminded those present that Fiji was doing very well.

And, he said, Government was serious in investment in the country’s future, which was evident through Government’s free education scheme.

Mr Sayed-Khaiyum said while Government was providing opportunities to all Fijians, people needed to do their bit as well.

He reminded parents that when the country grows it needed nurses, doctors, engineers, motor mechanics, marine scientists, etc.

He said Government had also catered for those who may not excel academically, but have other skill sets that could be further enhanced through technical colleges, which Government has set up around the country.

Mr Sayed-Khaiyum had a special message for the students: “Think about our country and put our country first. It is very, very important to become patriotic. And patriotic does not only mean singing the national anthem.

“It also means that we work hard in school. When you eat your packet of Twisties don’t throw the rubbish out on the road because that dirties our country,” he reminded them.
