School Choir from Lelean Memorial School (Fiji) captures the hearts of Fijians & Friends of Fiji in Aotearoa.

Fiji Community & Friends of Fiji in Wellington were able to witness & enjoy the beautiful harmony by these school children who sang their hearts out last night. We cried silent tears as we soaked in the sweetness of their voices knowing well that our beloved Homeland Fiji is in dire strait. For a moment just watching these school children singing their hearts, seem to 'tweek out' the memory of whats going on back in Fiji. We thoroughly enjoyed the entertainment and it sure brought smiles & happiness to all those that were,
We were blessed and enriched by the singing & messages brought by these children. We live in hope that this visit to Aotearoa will have enriched these children & will motivate & challenge them to be better leaders of tomorrow in Fiji or wherever they decide to reside in.

At this point, as members of a Fiji Community group in Aotearoa, it is only fitting that we acknowledge the people of Aotearoa & those in Authorities for giving these School Children & their Teachers the priviledge & opportunity to visit these beautiful 'land of the long white clouds, called Aotearoa'

To you we say ' Vinaka Vakalevu', 'Tena Koto, Tena Koto, Tena Koto Katoa.'
Rest assured these Children & their Teachers, their families, friends and even those of us living in Aotearoa will forever remember the kindness extended to these Children. The Children in particular will for sure, depart today knowing in their hearts that this trip has been invigorating & has taken them to another level in their growing up years.
Last the but the least we wish to thank all those hardworking team in our Fiji Community that have catered well for these Children & their Teachers. We are told that many of the Old Lelean Memorial School students helped brought these Children's dreams to reality. The Old Scholars of Lelean Memorial School now residing in Wellingtonm, Hamilton, Palmerston North & Auckland all played host to these Fijian School Children from Fiji accompanied by their School Principal & tearchers.

To the Teachers & the Lelean Memorial School Choir - We thank you & wish you all the very best on your homeward journey back to Fiji today. We know your families, parents, friends in Fiji will be waiting eagerly to hear stories of your visit to Aotearoa. To the School Children, do keep safe & may ' Divine Providence' pour Blessings on all your Dreams & Aspirations for your future.
