Students of St Anne’s Primary School celebrating Independence Day

Fiji Day celebrations were the order of the day for most schools around the country yesterday and St Anne’s Primary School was no exception. Students, teach­ers and parents gathered at the school in Suva to com­memorate the 48th anniver­sary of Fiji’s independence.

Headteacher Sister Maka­rita Vakadranu school said the teachers had been creat­ing awareness for more than a week about Fiji’s history, about the Fiji flag and on the importance of being patriotic.

“I hope we will remain united as Fiji citizens and continue to love one another, take care of each other and be proud of who we are as Fijians,” she said.

Fiji Museum

The importance of knowing Fiji’s history was echoed by the Fiji Museum’s Ratu Jone Balenivalu, who said it was a day to celebrate our past and remember the profound lead­ers who took our nation for­ward.

“This is a historical occasion especially for the Fiji Museum because this establishment it­self is a depository for tangi­ble historical objects,” he said.
