Programme focused on protecting environment.

Forty-three children from four primary schools near the Sigatoka Sand Dunes received recognition yesterday for performing their duties in an environment education programme for past six months.

The children who took part were from Naidovi Primary School, Cuvu District School, Nadroga Sangam Primary School and Kulukulu Primary School.

The junior park rangers of Heritage in Young Hands were presented certificates, trophies to mark the completion of the programme organised by Shangri-La’s Fijian Resort and Spa, in partnership with the National Trust for Fiji Islands.

The environment protection pro- gramme saw the children take part in seven stages of a competition.

But primarily the children were tasked to look after the welfare of the environment and its protection.

The Shangri-La’s Fijian Resort and Spa general manager, Craig Powell, said the children took part in camps, which had a wide range of activities that involved the children in practical conservation projects.

“There was a lot of interaction and fun, and of course they promoted preservation and protection of the natural environmental,” Mr Powell said.

He told the children that the camps were advocating on protecting the environment.

“We also collected a lot of rubbish along the Coral Coast area.”

The final day of camp was held on Monday and Tuesday concluding with a race at the Sigatoka Sand Dunes National Park.
