The newly-set-up online Radio Gyanvani Fiji announcers visited Mahatma Gandhi Memorial Primary School to interview and share the experience of culture and its heritage.
Sneh Reddy, a radio announcer of Radio Gyanvani Fiji said following last week’s cultural performances by the student’s during the cultural day, her team was prepared to meet the students and ask them about their talents and ambitions.
“We are a growing network in Fiji and we focus on culture enhancement, tradition and heritage of a person or a child.”.
She said it was very important for a child to know aspects of his or her culture and tradition and have background knowledge of her heritage.
“It is a great opportunity to speak to the students and get to know their perspective of modern culture and their heritage in terms of culture.”
Most of the students at the school disclosed their love and passion for their culture which was blended in the modern way.
Chanelle Giborees, a Class Eight student explained that dancing was her passion and even though Bollywood actors and actresses moves inspired her there was more to it.
“I have always wanted to learn something that remained ongoing but unique in us, so as part of my mother’s wish, I also attended Bharatnatyam classes at the High Commission of India, Indian Culture Centre”. Radio Gyanvani Fiji began its online broadcast in early August and aims to bring communities together by promoting culture, tradition, heritage and the expected patterns of behaviour in the society.
