There was a hive of activity at two remote schools in the Central Division yesterday when the Attorney-General Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum attended double prefects induction ceremonies.

Residents living around Naqali District School in Naitasiri and Kasavu Primary in Tailevu attended the ceremony in droves in the hope of having discussions with Mr Sayed-Khaiyum.

Mr Sayed-Khaiyum, who is also the Minister for Education, urged both sets of students – 216 and 120 in Naitasiri and Tailevu respectively – to be patriotic and honest.

“Always speak the truth – a very basic thing,” Mr Sayed-Khaiyum told the students at Naqali.

“Sometimes it can be difficult when one of your friends or your brother could be doing something wrong, but always tell the
truth.

“Lots of people, unfortunately even grown-ups, don’t speak the truth. You can see in the media every day now that all these politicians aren’t speaking the truth.”

After each ceremony, Mr Sayed-Khaiyum held impromptu talanoa sessions with people in both areas.

In Naqali, the school management and staff asked his assistance for a new computer room and a dining hall.

Other people also took the opportunity to highlight issues of infrastructure and understaffed health centres in the area.
