This is the message conveyed by Shaheen Suhailah Nisha, a Year 8 student of Maigania Muslim School in Nadi.

Ms Nisha was presented with the Dux of the year award by the Minister for Health and Medical Services, Hon. Rosy Akbar during the school’s prize-giving ceremony yesterday.

Ms Nisha said that this award has been achieved through her hard work and with the support of her parents and teachers.

While officiating the awards program, Minister Akbar emphasised on the importance of education as a key to advance national prosperity.

“The Fijian government is ensuring that every child has the opportunity to access quality education, as a way forward to create a knowledge-based society. Parents are advised to maximise on the Free Education Programs provided and to ensure that their children attend school regularly,” Minister Akbar elaborated.

She also emphasised that the Ministry of Health and Medical Services is working collaboratively to raise awareness on the healthy lifestyle development. The School Health Policy will also ensure that school canteens provide healthy food as part of the program to address the Non- Communicable Diseases (NCD).

Maigania Muslim Primary School has a total of 264 children and they are benefiting from the Ministry of Education’s Free Education Grant and Free Text Book and Free Bus Fare program.
