Everyone has a different way of participating in the 54th Independence celebrations. For students of the Middle School Pesega, they took a break from inside the classroom yesterday to clean up the complex at Tuanaimato before the celebration kicks off today.
The year 7 to year 9 students at the only middle school did their share in taking part in the celebration by picking up rubbish and weeding overgrown grass.
Lisalow Uili said this is their contribution to the independence celebration.
“We did this last year at Malae o Tiafau,” said the teacher.
“It’s a service project for the Independence day and we have been here since morning cleaning up the compound and picking up rubbish.
“It’s a good way for the students to take part in the Independence and they value that marching is not the only way to be part of the event.”
More than a hundred students from different schools, organisations and government ministries will be marching at Tuanaimato to commemorate the 54th Independence celebration today.
