That’s the word from students and teachers of Adi Maopa Secondary School, who are in the containment area at Cunnigham Stage 1, thanking everyone who have helped them with food rations.

The students and their senior officials left Vanuabalavu, Lau, to take part in the Coca-Cola Games, which was postponed after the detection of new cases of COVID-19. They are sheltering at the Wainimako Methodist Church hall.

Assistant principal Arieta Kaseni said they were thankful for the support shown by everyone who helped them since they arrived.

“Tremendous support rendered from families, relatives and friends in Fiji and abroad,” Ms Kaseni said.

“We would like to acknowledge all those who have donated in cash or kind towards our welfare during this quarantine period.”

Ms Kaseni wrote on Facebook that: “As the children looked on, familiar faces arrived in a white vehicle to deliver fruits, vegetables, root crops, meat, snacks and seafood to boost our nutrition and immunity during these 14 days of quarantine.

“The students were sad that they were only able to see those bringing in food, but could not meet them due to the restrictions.

“We feel how welcoming we have been treated and all we can do is look to the road and wave.

“They gazed on as the familiar faces departed in the white vehicle, waved goodbye with echoes of “malo vakalevu” sounding along the verandah of the Wainimako church hall.

“Thank you for all the generous help we have been shown. Please accept our sincere acknowledgment, as we send our regards to our families and relatives out there.”

Ms Kaseni said the students were coping well and have adapted to the demands of the programme that had been set for them.

“We have 12 students, two parents, five teachers and two pre-schoolers at the Wainimako Methodist Church hall,” she said.

“The programme that has been set for the students included prayers, meals, study, revision, movies, indoor games and physical exercise (indoors using a mobile fitness app).”
