The Fijian Teachers Association was represented in various prefects induction early this year. The 14th of February meant a lot more for some students as it was the induction day for Veiuto Primary School. The 2014 Prefect body were formally inducted by Mr Mikaele Leawere, the Principal Admin Officer for FTA. The day was a memorable one for everyone including parents and toddlers as it was truly a family event as well as academic.
The Minister for Education was able to meet the General Secretary and his team on 17th of January. The meeting was cordial where he expressed his view of the need for MoE to work with the teacher unions on educational issues of concern to both. This was well received by our reps who agreed that working together would bring lots of benefits to the education system as our common interest was the improvement in the quality of education provided for our people so that they would become educated and productive citizens of the future.
The FTA Credit Thrift Co-operative Limited had continues to slowly increase in membership as more members show their interest and this was indeed a good sign for FTA’s newest subsidiary. Now that the Board had been endorsed, they would be required to conduct the affairs of the FTACTCL and make relevant decisions to be further endorsed in the next AGM. This was another step forward for FTA as we venture into new areas to try and maximize benefits for our members and maintain them as well.
