Radisson Blu Resort Fiji’s ‘Adopt-a-School Programme’ has a list of achievements to celebrate! Foremost is the strengthened and ongoing 5-year collaboration with a voluntary organization based in Adelaide called South Pacific School Aid (SPSA).
SPSA has shipped over 90,000 books and resources to date in support of the Radisson Blu Resort Fiji’s ‘Adopt-a-School’ initiative. Through the Responsible Business Committee head by Radisson Blu Resort Fiji employee Satya Narayan and the former General Manager Gerard Knight’s wife Trish Knight, the ‘Adopt-a-School Programme’ have established over 30 school libraries and distributed reading resources to remote Primary and Secondary schools on Viti Levu and Vanua Levu.
The partnership started 5 years ago when a volunteer of SPSA Adelaide, Kathy Sampson, visited Fiji on a family holiday and decided that she would like to assist in a school library set-up. Nadi Primary was chosen as the first school to receive a new library and the protégé began. Kathy went back to Adelaide after gifting Nadi Primary an amazing new teaching resource and Trish, alongside a hardworking group of volunteers and the Radisson Blu Resort Fiji family who continued with the much needed work to assist other schools.
The relationship between SPSA and the Radisson Blu Resort Fiji has flourished under the direction of Peter Kirk and his team in Adelaide who have been supplying pallets of books over the course of 5 years and many local schools have now received new libraries through the Radisson Blu Resort Fiji ‘Adopt-a-School Programme’.
It is a small world and the story comes full circle, as Trish and Gerard Knight have just relocated to Adelaide after 5 years in Fiji. Trish just started few weeks back volunteering for SPSA at their distribution warehouse and now has the opportunity to pack boxes of books bound for many countries including Fiji. This is the true meaning of Sota tale, as the Knights have left but somehow, they are still here, continuing the work they started.
“Congratulations to an amazing partnership that spans the ocean and brings much joy and excitement to all those involved,” says Suzie Jones, Director of Sales and Marketing at the Radisson Blu Resort Fiji.
“We are thrilled to know that Trish Knight and the hard work she put in while residing in Fiji will continue with her contribution and support on the other end. Her passion lives on and we at Radisson Blu Resort Fiji are excited with this prospect,” says Suzie Jones.
