It is im­por­tant to be strict for chil­dren’s ed­u­ca­tion, says par­ent Shirley Ku­mar. Ms Ku­mar was one of the many proud par­ents of Vashist Muni Memo­rial Pri­mary School in Navua. Her son, Ra­jiv Ad­hi­tiya Ku­mar, 10, in Year 4 got first prize, while her daugh­ter, Alisha Ed­rina Ku­mar, 6, in Year One re­ceived the best at­ten­dance award dur­ing the school’s prize­giv­ing day yes­ter­day. Mrs Ku­mar said as a par­ent she felt ed­u­ca­tion was im­por­tant from an early age.

“It is very im­por­tant for us par­ents to be strict to our chil­dren when it comes to their ed­u­ca­tion and fu­ture bet­ter­ment, she said. She urged other par­ents to make timeta­bles at home for their chil­dren to fol­low when they re­turn from school so that they have some time for ev­ery­thing. “I have a timetable at home, which my chil­dren have to fol­low and can­not ex­ceed the al­lo­cated time­frame,” she said.

“Be­cause of a par­ent’s con­tri­bu­tion and ded­i­ca­tion to their chil­dren’s ed­u­ca­tion and aca­demic works, it makes a huge dif­fer­ence in their marks and their fu­ture over­all.” Edited by Naisa Koroi
