Unpleasant weather conditions didn’t put a damper on the homecoming welcome Faleata College gave for Samoa’s Heroine Ele Opeloge yesterday.
The students at Faleata College contributed $301.20 to the Samoa Observer Ele Fund.
Ele stopped by the school to pay her personal thanks to the Principal, Tanuvasa Mike Gray, the staff and the students.
She expressed her gratitude for their contributions and reminded the students to listen to their teachers in the classroom.
Asked why Faleata decided to contribute to the fund, Deputy Principal, Lilia Eseroma, delightfully proclaimed: “We are Samoans and we help other Samoans!”
Also, the Opeloge name is renowned through out Faleata and not just because of Ele.
Her Brother, Niu Sila Opeloge carries the torch and hosts weightlifting trainings at Faleata College on Monday, Wednesday and Friday.
The sport of weightlifting is growing on the grounds of Faleata with much thanks to the Opeloges.
