Issue No. 39/2020 – Friday, 25 September 2020 (Kitiona Tausi)
The Nauti Primary School organizes a first Character Parade today, Friday 25 September 2020. The Character Parade is some kind of a fund raising activity replacing the bazaar fund raising activity used to organize by the school.
According to one of the primary school teachers, Ms. Eline Monise Laafai, the chief organizer of the parade said “It is a kind of dress show but depicting different themes and each class selects its own theme. The themes, however, should be related to traditional as well as modern style of dressing.
Ms. Laafai said “the other purpose of the Character Parade” was to support the climate change campaign For walking to work rather than using vehicle transport on Fridays. Because the school cannot participate in this campaign, this Character Parade will have the students march on foot from the school to the Tulakiiga Falekaupule, a distance of about 300 meters. This is to show support for the campaign.
The Tulakiiga Falekaupule was full packed this morning with parents, guardians and friend were there to witness the show by classes.
Ms. Laafai said the function collected more than $900.00 from admission fees and donations. She said, this is the first time for such an activity but it hoped that this will be improved in the coming years.
