Minister emphasizes reading for students

The Education Minister,Filipe Bole, in his speech during the opening of the new Lavena Primary School, Taveuni, stressed the importance of reading at school and quoted the common adage “a good reader is a good learner”.

It is through reading that one gets to know a diverse range of facts- different places, different people, different plants and animals and the mechanics of how things come to being.

The Minister requested parents to find avenues where the school can be stocked with library books and reading materials that would enhance students’ learning.

The Minister expressed his hope that the parents and elders of Lavena would work together to ensure their children are provided with books and other reading materials as the year progresses.
