Close to 50 students of Qauia Community Kindergarten in Lami will now be able to better understand COVID-19 safety measures.

This was all thanks to the COVID-19 related books donated by a non-governmental organisation, Bula Broads.

The books include children’s stories based around wearing masks, social distancing and explaining COVID-19 to children.

The organisation has also donated toys, early learning school aids, reading books and children’s sized masks to help them keep safe.

Bula Broads Founder Denise Kloeden said it was a perfect time to assist the kindergarten, as Qauia was one of the hardest hit communities in terms of COVID-19.

“Bula Broads recently ran a children’s Christmas party supposedly for 100 children. After almost 200 children turned up, we knew we had to support early childhood learning in the community kindergarten too,” she said.

“Donations were also gathered from generous sponsors like Foods Pacific, New World IGA, Aquasafe and from friends and family in Suva, Australia and America.”

Teacher Sauca Waika acknowledged the organisation for the timely donation.

“The donation came at a perfect time which will encourage and inspire the students to return to learning and play safely,” she said.

“Having access to so many books will enhance student’s languages and the toys are a great contribution to the school overall”.

The community is hoping for someone generous in Fiji to help them with some outdoor playing equipment for preschool students.
