THE British High Commissioner to Solomon Islands David Ward is pleased with the turnout by young people from schools all across Honiara in the Commonwealth programme yesterday.
He said this is a way forward towards equal participation in ensuring sustainable development within Solomon Islands and across Commonwealth countries.
Mr Ward said the ideas they (students) share is inspiring and has paved the way on how everyone can have a stake in society.
On the same occasion Junior Fordney, as school representative, encouraged the participants by quoting Her Majesty the Queen in saying that the gathering is a fine example of how consensus and commitment can help to create a future that is fairer, more secure, more prosperous and sustainable.
