Outrigger Fiji Chef Cooks Up New School Playground

Pre-school children in a remote Fijian village have had a joyous start to their school year with a brand-new playground thanks to Outrigger Fiji Beach Resort.

Outrigger’s association with Nadrala Sangam School, Sigatoka Valley began when and Shailesh Naidu, executive chef, Outrigger Fiji Beach Resort, an ex-pupil at the school, was invited to attend its annual prefects’ induction.

Noticing the kindergarten’s financial struggles, Naidu approached Peter Hopgood, general manager, Outrigger Fiji Beach Resort for help. With strong support from Nadrala’s community, Outrigger Fiji’s engineering team finished construction on the kindergarten, landscaped its grounds, and erected a fence and playground for the pupils.

“Our culture at Outrigger Fiji is all about giving back to our local community and Chef Naidu has fully embraced this ideology,” outlined Hopgood.
