Year 8 student of Solosolo Primary School, Hero Tuilaepa is only interested about a thing or two about Fiji- rugby sevens and Seremaia Tuwai.

Everything else he learnt about Fiji over the past three months as they prepared for the flag raising ceremony yesterday was secondary.

Tuilaepa said he was proud to be part of the ceremony and to sing and dance for Fiji.

“Next week I will definitely be cheering for Fiji at the rugby 7s competition.”

Solosolo Primary School teacher Fetulima Saufoi said they did most of their research about Fiji online and also by talking to Fijians in Samoa.

“Otherwise, most of the dance and songs were taught by our teachers.”

At least 60 Year 7 and 8 students paid tribute to Fiji by singing the national anthem and performed a dance to the  song Tui na Savusavu Vude Mix by Rescue Brothers and Tucake Mai by Saimoni Vuatalevu.

As the Solosolo Primary students marched onto the field to take their places, they sang the popular Gospel number “Oqo na na noqu Masu.”

The ceremony definitely came alive as our Fijian athletes and officials joined the Solosolo Primary students with the tuiboto.

Solosolo Primary has a school roll of 336 students and 9 teachers.

The flag raising ceremony took place at the Falefono, Mulinuu yesterday.
