Primary school is free and attended by children usually from the age of 6 up to 16 years (8 years). They then go on to secondary school for up to 5 years - students either leave after 3 years or continue to complete their final 2 years to qualify for tertiary education. Very few secondary schools offer vocational education.
Fijian life revolves around the church, the village, the rugby field and the garden – similar to PNG. It is generally safe, and friendly. Fijians have a very laid back, relaxed attitude, and, like PNG, they have the notion of “Fiji Time” (like PNG time), but that doesn’t mean you should slack off your studies!
