Nadi Centre for Special Education, Headteacher Mr Shiromani Felix said he was very grateful to Burger King for involving the children.

Mr. Felix had told the children that they were to be a ‘King for a day’.

When we entered Burger King, the children were given crowns and it confirmed to them that they were really a ‘King for a day’

Never before has anyone thought how evolving this vulnerable children with special needs and limited capacities to be part of such a multi million dollar enterprise.

When the transport provided by the company arrived at school, the children had all cheered and shouted. They were all excited.

Burger King General Manager Akash Narsey added that it was important to include the local community in such events.

This excitement is further enhanced by the fact that children with special needs from Nadi will be opening our Flagship restaurant in Nadi.

Although our brand is global, it is also vital that we include the local community in events such as these to ensure that we continue building closer bonds with our neighbors.
