Afa­mous ar­chi­tect An­toni Gaudi once said, “Colour in cer­tain places has the great value of mak­ing the out­lines and struc­tural planes seem more en­er­getic”.

This was true for the four win­ners who col­lected their ‘Ed­u­care’ sets of ex­er­cise books in Nadi yes­ter­day. They par­tic­i­pated in a colour­ing com­pe­ti­tion or­gan­ised by the Fiji

Sun and Star Prin­tery.

This com­pe­ti­tion has also re­lieved par­ents who were get­ting their chil­dren ready for the new school cal­en­dar with stationery.

Shristi Reddy, 14, a Year-10 stu­dent at Jasper Williams High School in Lautoka was among the win­ners. Reddy said, “it is my hobby to do colour­ing and draw­ings, my mum chose the colours for me. I did not ex­pect to win but I did it for the sake of hope.

“I thank Fiji Sun for the com­pe­ti­tion be­cause this light­ens the bur­den on my par­ents buy­ing books for me this year.”

Her mother Rosie John, is an ad­min­is­tra­tor with Deluxe Paints in Lautoka.

Ms John said, “I love colours and this in­spires me a lot. While my daugh­ter was do­ing the colour­ing she men­tioned to me that she wants to win so that we don’t buy the books for her. This came true, thank you Fiji Sun.”

Parth Bad­ju­gar, 10, of Tagore Me­mo­rial School in Ba also re­ceived a prize for a first time to par­tic­i­pate in such com­pe­ti­tion. “First time for me in any com­pe­ti­tion, my dad is an ex­ec­u­tive in a com­pany and he buys the Fiji Sun on daily ba­sis so I have gen­er­ated an in­ter­est to go over the pa­per as well un­til I saw the colour­ing and thought of why not par­tic­i­pate.”

Lenora Sela, 17, a Year 12 stu­dent of Sangam Sadhu Kup­puswamy Me­mo­rial Col­lege (SSKMC) loves draw­ing as a hobby.

“I did not ex­pect to win but feel proud to be recog­nised. Ac­tu­ally I did the colour­ing with my sis­ter, it was a good effort of colour­ing we did.

Ki­van­jali Mu­daliar, 10, a Sa­beto Sangam School Year Five stu­dent was im­pressed with what she learned.

“I took ideas from my mother but I did it my­self. I did make up my mind to win a prize.” Ki­van­jali said.

Fiji Sun mar­ket­ing man­ager Ra­jiv Raj thanked the stu­dents and their par­ents for their par­tic­i­pa­tion. Fif­teen stu­dents were among other win­ners.

“The kids re­ally did their best and won prizes, this will lighten the bur­dened to buy books all the best for 2018,” he said.

Mr Raj added that Fiji Sun would pro­mote other com­pe­ti­tions in the com­ing months.
