PRIME Minister Voreqe Bainimarama has impressed upon students the importance of dedicating time and prioritising their studies over other activities.
Speaking to students from military background at the closing of a seven week revision session organised by the Republic of Fiji Military Forces Wives and Mothers Club, Prime Minister Bainimarama said education was Government’s priority because it envisions a nation led by a smarter group of people in the future.
He said the 15 telecentres opened in schools around the country was a testimony of the priority and commitment Government had made towards education and it will continue to open more such centres for the benefit of the students living in rural areas.
The Prime Minister said Government not only wants more educated youth in the job market, it also wants to see youth who create employment whereby providing jobs for 10 to 15 more people.
“We don’t only want educated people who are looking for work, we want people who can create jobs and employ 10 to 15 people themselves. This is how we will grow our economy,” Prime Minister Bainimarama told the students, parents and teachers at Ratu Sukuna Memorial School.
He commended the students for sacrificing their Saturdays.
