Being the only secondary school in the Sabeto area of Nadi, Principal of Sabeto College Shelly Imran was thankful that her school was considered for the Parliament Bus programme.

And more importantly, the school was still overjoyed that their orator, a Year 10 student, Priyanka Anjani Pillay, won the oratory contest that was held on Thursday last week to mark Commonwealth Day.

“Fourteen other secondary schools took part in the oratory contest. Our orator was the young­est, a Year 10 student, and the last to speak,” Mrs Imran said.

“Other principals were asking me about our orator, but I replied that I’ve kept the best for the last. And I’m so overwhelmed that Priyanka proved my statement correct.”

“Thank you very much for organ­ising such a contest whereby our students are exposed to the work of Parliament, empowered and since they are the future leaders, I feel that Priyanka, in the years to come, will be a very good parliamentar­ian,” Mrs Imran said.

As for the Parliament Bus pro­gramme, the Sabeto College prin­cipal was thankful that Parliament was brought closer to the students.

“The programme was very enrich­ing and enlightening and the stu­dents were happy and excited to be associated with this programme,” Mrs Imran said.

Similar sentiments were echoed by the head boy of Mulomulo Sec­ondary School, Krishaal Minal Chand.

“The Parliament Bus programme is beneficial because it helps us understand how Parliament works and the roles and functions of Par­liament,” he said.

The programme ended at Nar­ewa Village before travelling to the Northern Division for schools and villages in Cakaudrove district this week.
