12-YEAR-OLD AWARDED FOR HER BRAVERY

Katarina Bubu was recognized and acknowledged for being an exceptionally brave young Fijian at Nailuva District School in Rakiraki today.

Minister for Education, Heritage and Arts Hon. Rosy Akbar while handing the award said: “it is indeed a celebration as we empower and raise the visibility of children, celebrate their achievements and promote national pride and good citizenship.”

“We are rewarding one child, but I believe there are many children out there who show bravery, courage and honesty in their own way, in their daily lives that also deserve recognition.”

The award was provided by the Fiji Children’s Award – the brainchild of Vision Fiji – which is celebrated every two years to honour children for their selflessness, bravery and community service on one’s initiative.
