Hard work pays
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.
