although I don't understand the politics that are surrounding the proposal to change the names of the schools, it seems like a silly way to try to homogenize diversity--which I personally don't agree with in any case. Do some people feel less "fijian" than others? because of race, religion or ethnicity?

Some people think to take away the tags in the names with somehow change the culture of focussing on ethnicity. Because Fiji for many years had two major ethnic groups, almost equal in population, the words 'Indian' or 'Fijian' have been over-emphasised, yet people forget that we classify ourselves in numerous other ways as well.

hi, i stumbled upon your blog while searching for music and art schools. we have plans to relocate to fiji around the end of '09 or the start of '10, which would mark my daughter's entry to preschool. i was wondering if there are institutes in fiji that teach classical music, art or dance (ballet, jazz or tap) to young children. perhaps those that use suzuki method or other similar systems.

thank you very much! any help would be much appreciated!

Hello, Cat with a Fiddle. I don't live in Suva but you could contact the guy who writes www.promotingsuva.blogspot.com and he may have the answer, or contact one of the International schools in Fiji or Sun Yat Sen school or Fiji Arts Council or the Alliance Francais in Suva. They may be able to give you some information. Good luck.
