Venue Change

Prema Nath Sharma, Suva

The Fiji Football Association has announced that the Inter District Championships (IDC) will be held at one venue.

In this tournament; primary schools, secondary schools, senior division soccer and premier division will be taking part.

According to them; in spite of four divisions running together; the games will be completed.

I fail to understand in the Battle of the Giants there is only grade game even then they (FFA) want to jump over the fence and want to play semi-finals on one field and the final on another.

Why?

I do not understand before it was 60 minutes a game, now its 90 minutes for a game.

Very well then start the games one day before. Please think of the people because we are the consumers.

It is because of us; Fiji FA is there; in the first place.

 

Awesome Concert

Ravai Palako,  Delainavesi

The different items of cultural meanings shown by the students of Dudley High School were beyond comparison.

Many thanks to the principal, staff, teachers, parents and guardians for the hard work and the never ending support of the old scholars and friends.

 

Better way of delivery?

Dr John McCorquodale,

I am amazed at the number of conferences reported each day in the Fiji Sun.

It is always nice to acknowledge the efforts of those participating, but I sometimes wonder if the money spent on the venues, travel and accommodation and food might not be better spent on more worthy delivery programmes instead.

Networking is all well and good, but in this age of ever-advancing technology, surely there are easier, faster and cheaper ways of getting the message across?

 

Church levies and tithes

Tukai Lagonilakeba, Nadi

Realistically, religion in our country is a business and rightfully its income received through the consistent demand in the guise of levies and tithes must be taxed, FIRCA is losing out on millions of dollars revenue annually that can be derived from all these religious organisations which can be put to good use by our Government to benefit all Fijians.

As reported in the Fiji Sun of July 28 on page 17, I agree with the majority opinion on the above issue that it has become a burden to the many which has resulted in the droves of church members who have left and opted to join other denominations that do not force their members to compulsorily give their tithes and levies.

It must be given from the heart freely and members should not be reminded every Sunday of their pledges to give wholeheartedly in return for being blessed abundantly by His Holiness the Lord Jehovah;

Envelopes are given every Sunday to every member so the Church can identify who is faithful and who is giving which amount as opposed to those who give nothing or less.

The Methodist Church of Fiji, Assemblies of God, Seventh Day Adventist, Catholic Church, World Harvest Centre in Kinoya, all do their own businesses, properties and land all over the country apart from the Hindu and Islam faiths.

I am reliably told that they all derive very good incomes from their success which in a nutshell is ample and good enough to keep the church running in order to maintain the lavish lifestyle of our church stewards and Reverends.

It is against the law and not according to the will of God to force church congregations to give against their own free will.
