TWENTY three students from two kindergarten schools in Verata, Tailevu, today visited the capital city for the first time as part of their educational excursion trip.

The students from Vunibokoi Kindergarten School and Kumi Kindergarten School in Verata are visiting Suva on a day excursion to experience the city, accompanied by parents and guardians.

The tiny tots are also on a learning journey visiting media outlets including The Fiji Times and various service providers – a more practical twist to their daily syllabus.

According to Vunibokoi Kindergarten teacher Lilly Volau, the visit gave the students an eye opening experience and learning more about organisations such as The Fiji Times.

“Some of these students haven’t been to Suva so this is actually a good experience,” Ms Volau said, adding they were from the interior of Verata.

“You’ll reach Verata Rd but then you will have to go right inside the desert,” she said laughingly.

Ms Volau said this was also the first time for the school to have an excursion trip.

“So we had an activity in school so I asked them if they knew about firemen, The Fiji Times and they were lost – so I asked them if they wanted to visit the place.

“They have seen Korovou and Nausori. But for Suva, this is the first time they have been here.”

The two kindergarten schools cater for the neighbouring three villages in the area.
