Careers day at the archives

When most kids are planning their next trip to the nearby river for a swim this school holidays, the high school students of Naburenivalu village, Namena, Tailevu chose to visit the National Archives of Fiji for their careers programme. Tour coordinator retired military officer Sairusi Davui said since he moved back to the village two years ago he began observing the path the children were taking after leaving high school. He then began planning a careers day to introduce the students to the world of work.
“This tour is for them to consider their career path. The tour is a reward for them because for most of them this is the first time to the Archives and we have enjoyed coming here and I am sure they have learnt many things about choosing the right career.
The fifteen students from Forms Three to Seven took the opportunity to enquire about subjects and the work experience of the staff. One has decided that she will strive towards her goal to work at the National Archives.
For Form seven student of Dawasamu High School Sera Titilade this is her second visit to the Archives and she is convinced that this where here future lies.
“I last came here in 2013 and my interest began then and it hasn’t stopped. I took up the opportunity to come back and I am still very interested in working here. I am on the right path with my history, geography and Fijian subjects.
“It will be really exciting to work with Fiji’s history, reading and studying about how we were in the past and helping protect our history.
The students attend Tailevu North College, St Vincent High School and Dawasamu High School.
