Dear Editor – Wish to acknowledge the two schools in Honiara for the hosting of their cultural event last week.
Culture forms part of our society and its important that our children must also learn each others culture.
Wherever you go, culture cannot be ignored because its part our us.
So the move by King George Sixth school and Honiara high school should be commended and for other schools to follow.
Schools which continues to stage their cultural night or festival each year or semester, must be acknowledged as well. So good on those schools who have continued to maintain this event in their calender each year.
University of the South Pacific, being one of the largest regional institutions also regard culture as important thats why each year it usually stages the USP open day where cultural performance becomes the highlight.
Pacific is rich in culture and we should be proud of it.
In Solomon Islands, we should be proud as well for being a country which has a rich and diverse culture unlike other pacific countries which only has few cultures.
We have around nine provinces with many unique cultures covering the Melanesian, Polynesian and Micronesian.
I would also like to see primary schools encouraging the staging of cultural day in their schools as well.
This is important to maintain our culture and keep it alive.
Once again thank you KGVI and Honiara High for giving a chance to our students to showcase their cultures.
