Duavata Secondary School has won the ‘Our Constitution Challenge’ after their song on pledging to protect the planet and putting our constitutional right to a clean and healthy environment into practice stood out from over 100 submissions.

Students Mereoni Kelera, Maria Prasad, Apisai Vulaono, Poseci Baleikasavu, Mitiani Turaga, Aisea Masivesi, Epeli Vosadrau, Makereta Sinukakala, and their teacher, Sevanaia Nace Matevakaloloma produced a three minute video where they sang a song in English, i-Taukei and Hindi.

While announcing the winners, President, Ratu Wiliame Katonivere says the rights enshrined in the Constitution only make a real difference when we intentionally put them into practice.
