Belated Happy International Literacy Day

A belated Happy International Literacy Day (8th Sept)! And I must mention how Soroptimists in Suva marked it!

One of the slides from the Workshop on 'Stress Management and Mental Illness'

Stationary Items for donation

Yesterday (8th Sept.) was 'International Literacy Day'. With fellow Soroptimists in Suva, we organised a workshop for teachers in one of the highschools on 'Stress Management and Mental Illness' on 5th Sept. It was a satisfying experience as teachers indicated that this was a much needed exercise. And then on 8th Sept, we donated stationary items to another primary school which caters to students from nearby settlement area mainly. We also gave scholarship to three deserving students - this will now be an annual exercise for Suva Soroptimists.

And then last night I watched a TED talk and came across this quote while watching a TED talk by Sir Ken Robinson on Learning Revolution.

"The dogmas of the quiet past are inadequate to the stormy present. The occasion is piled high with difficulty and we must rise with the occasion. As our case is new, we must think anew and act anew. We must disenthrall ourselves, and then we shall save our country."
— Abraham Lincoln

Food for thought...

And for me it was a double dose of niceties in a week!
