After a lapse of two years the Fiji Police Force’s Bluelight Camp for students is being conducted, this time with the aim of showing children that there is more to life then electronic gadgets.

In partnership with Australian Aid and UNICEF, the Bluelight Camp coordinated by the Juvenile Bureau has been an avenue where the Fiji Police Force would nurture students to becoming law abiding citizens.

The weeklong camp is being held at Burelevu Village in Tailevu and the 28 students are from schools in both the Central and Eastern Division.

Co-ordinator Sergeant Emosi Uluilakeba said the focus of the camp was to show students how life can be more than just about gadgets.

“This is the second such camp where we give them an experience of village life because we want them to know that fun can be derived from life experiences and things around you,” Sergeant Uluilakeba said.

Meanwhile, as hosts of the one week camp the villagers of Burelevu said they were happy to assist the Force in molding Fiji’s future generation.

Chairman of the Burelevu Education Committee and retired school teacher Toma Waqavonovono, said they were eager to host the students.

“We often hear that education is a lifelong process. No matter where we stop for our education path there’s always room for learning,” Mr Waqavonovono said.

“The Education Committee has been running for 5 years now and we also have a similar concept of promoting education through various means and if we can play a role in helping our future generation then this is time well spent for all of us.”

The camp concludes on Saturday.
