The Fifty-two students of Ratu Finau Secondary School in Lakeba, Lau were accompanied by six teachers and a representative from the Parents and Teachers Association.

The school’s Assistant Principal Mr Roneel Prasad said the visit was very encouraging and motivational for their students.

PRASAD: “Our students are so fortunate to visit Parliament and learn how Parliament operates from the Civic Education team. We find difficulty in watching live Parliamentary sessions due to the changes in Fiji One TV but now we better understand the processes in Parliament.”

He also encouraged other schools to visit Parliament whenever they visit Viti Levu for an excursion trip.

PRASAD: “If you have an opportunity to come to Suva for an excursion, don’t miss Parliament House. The manner in which the Civic Education organised the tour and their briefing is very informative. At first, we had this fear of Parliament as a sacred place. But now after the presentation, our fear has gone and we appreciate that it’s an open Parliament.”
