Ratu Varani Memorial School (The Kadavu Primary School) in Kadavu has been fundraising over the last couple of weeks to make up the shortfall between budgets and government funding. This is normal at this time of year when parents and freinds of the school join together to support education in the islands.

There are 2 houses in the school.  The Blue House went fishing and the Yellow House invited Matava to help.  

Through The Matava Foundation, 2 evenings were organised over 2 weeks to run fundrasing events at the resort. Over the course of these events the Matava Foundation and resort guests contributed F$2,000 dollars to the School Fund. 

As a thank you by the parents, a thank you meke was held in celebration. This cultural, fun evening for us held at the resort was warmly greeted by staff and guests alike.

In keeping with the resort's community and environmental policies, Matava Foundation supports educational and conservation efforts by the local communities and villages.

Matava Director Mr Richard Akhtar said "This latest event was one of the most successful to date, and we hope to repeat it in years to come".
