Three students from Funafuti Seventh-day Adventist Primary School have won prizes in a schools poetry competition run as part of Tuvalu Environmental Week.

Anishia Katoa received first prize, Kailelei Loia, second, and Adrianna Pedro, third, in the Air Pollution Schools competition, which was organised and sponsored by the Ozone Depletion Substance Project, part of the Tuvalu Environment Department.

Funafuti is the only Adventist school on the island, with 213 enrolments in 2019 and 11 teaching staff.

Principal Kima Pedro said the competition was a great opportunity to promote Adventist education to the community.
