Joji O Toroni­bau Tunuloa

I read with in­ter­est on (22.08.16 Mon­day FT) one of Save­naca Vakali­waliwa’s let­ter on the sea­sonal work­ers de­vel­op­ment in Aus­tralia and the flour­ish­ing scheme in Bri­tish Columbia, Canada. To Mr Vakali­waliwa, you have seen the open­ing, but for us here as ru­ral dwellers we were all in dire straits de­spite try­ing.

Un­der-18 Deans tro­phy For any breath of hope your en­light­en­ment would be most paramount please.

For the first time ever in the his­tory of the Deans Tro­phy com­pe­ti­tion, the tro­phy trav­elled from Viti Levu to the North just for us here to have a quick peak on the price­less wares and how the Queen Vic­to­ria School Un­der-18 team won it de­spite their iso­la­tion and be­ing dis­persed to their adopted schools. Any­how, we had a quite a mov­ing cel­e­bra­tion here in Labasa as the Pres­i­dent of Par­ents, Teach­ers As­so­ci­a­tion from Suva, Roko Ali­pate brought the Deans tro­phy to us here in the North cul­mi­nat­ing with Rio 7s cel­e­bra­tion to­day (yes­ter­day). Only in the North, a 44-gal­lon drum was car­ried in the mid­dle of the street by a sin­gle gen­tle­man with a woman seen beat­ing. Imag­ine as the pa­rade pro­ces­sion from the Y cor­ner pro­ceeded to­wards town the beat­ing of the drum came ex­actly from the op­po­site. What a day! What a joy­ous scene.
