Lockington's Everyday Fiji ... Life Goes On
I lived in Levuka on Ovalau from 1985 to 1989 and Levuka was a busy little town. PAFCO was thriving and foreign fishing vessels were coming to Levuka in the hundreds. Business was thriving. I have been reliably told by a good friend that he notices a difference, perhaps we need to take a look and see what changes have taken place. We have the look North policy. Can we have a Look to Ovalau policy?
Can someone tell us how PAFCO is faring? It will tell us how Levuka and Ovalau and the Lomaiviti Group are faring.
The Power of Facebook
I walked into an Internet shop in Lautoka and saw many students from around Lautoka at computers. I identified all the schools by the uniforms. There were about twenty computers and all were being used by students. I had to laugh when I saw the majority of them had text books opened by their side, and some had note pads with writing on them, but it was FaceBook they had open on their computer screen.
A few of the students heard my laugh and knew me and said, “Have to relax mada during research Mr. Lockington.”
I suppose so.
I wonder if FaceBook should be included in the school curriculum with text books uploaded and school work done via Face Book. I know Face Book is part of the "social media" but could it also be made into a powerful educational?
