Fulton Hogan Hiways presents 150,000 Pocket Calendars to the Ministry of Education
Fulton Hogan Hiways has presented 150,000 2017-pocket calendars to the Ministry of Education for distribution to schoolchildren around Fiji.
Fulton Hogan Hiway’s Manager Health and Safety, John Tinsley, in presenting the calendars to the Principal Education Officer for Primary Schools, Marika Baleca, said that the they were produced as a useful aid to not only help children plan their school week, but also as a reminder of everyday dangers that they face as pedestrians.
On the back of the calendar are safety rules specially designed for children walking on Fiji roads.
Mr. Tinsley presented the calendars on behalf of the 300 employees of Fulton Hogan Hiways.
In responding, Mr. Baleca said that the calendar is not only a useful reference to public holidays for the children but there is a timetable included that allows them to programme for their studies. And most importantly, he added, the road safety rules are a constant reminder to the children to walk safely.
Mr. Baleca thanked Fulton Hogan Hiways, not only for the work they were doing on Fiji’s roads, but for the concern they are showing for its children in producing this calendar.
