Prime Min­is­ter Voreqe Bain­i­marama paid a visit to the Bula Cen­tre Kinder­garten in Auck­land yes­ter­day.

The kinder­garten is the first and only pre-school fa­cil­ity in New Zealand that is run by the Fi­jian com­mu­nity and ed­u­cates stu­dents in both cur­ricu­lum and also cul­ture, blend­ing Fi­jian and Maori. Kinder­garten chair­man Na­canieli Yal­i­mai­wai said the visit by the Prime Min­is­ter was tes­ti­mony to Fi­jians liv­ing in New Zealand on the im­por­tance of ed­u­ca­tion placed by Govern­ment.

“It is an im­por­tant part of the de­vel­op­ment of Fiji and the visit here by the PM is fur­ther tes­ti­mony of the com­mit­ment of the Prime Min­is­ter not only to Fi­jians, but also ed­u­ca­tion as a whole,” Mr Yal­i­mai­wai said.

“This is the first time a Fi­jian Prime Min­is­ter has vis­ited the school since its open­ing four years ago and we hope that we will have more vis­its as such.”

Stu­dents wore tra­di­tional iTaukei at­tire and es­corted the Prime Min­is­ter from the school gate to their hall be­fore per­form­ing a meke for the Head of Govern­ment. Mr Bain­i­marama thanked the teach­ers for their ef­forts in help­ing their chil­dren main­tain their cul­ture and tra­di­tion in New Zealand. He thanked the stu­dents for their per­for­mance and urged them to be good cit­i­zens.
