Out & About with Kids - - DID YOU KNOW...? -

There were cel­e­bra­tions through­out the na­tion, and a pub­lic hol­i­day de­clared, with the news of Fiji’s sen­sa­tional first-ever Olympic Gold at Rio in Au­gust. Fiji’s Rugby 7s beat Great Bri­tain 43-7 in a nail-bit­ing match that ce­mented Fiji’s sta­tus as the world’s top rugby na­tion.

Car­lah Wal­ton, re­gional di­rect of Tourism Fiji Aus­tralia said the his­toric win re­minded the world “… that hap­pi­ness can find you on our beaches, in our turquoise wa­ters, through the smiles and wel­com­ing Bula of our peo­ple, as well as on the Rugby pitch.”
