FWC Bazaars always a popular day out for a bargain

29 September 2010

Every year, the Free Wesleyan Church often organize bazaars once or twice a year, whereby it is a day where one is guaranteed to find an item at a lower price or a good bargain,

Students from FWC church schools raise money and funding for their schools, by selling Tongan handicrafts, food, ‘umus and hand-made ta’ovalas, 'kiekies' and 'faikakai', being among the main products from their school projects.

To coincide with the ‘September time’, for the church womenfolks, the Queen Salote College and Tupou College bazaars is always a colourful display of hand-made crafts and local arrays of traditional ta’ovala, ‘kafa’, and jewelleries made from corals and sea products.

Local foods and home-made cuisines are on displays and provide a quick snack for the customers and visitors browsing the stalls.

This year, around three bazaars has already been organized with a special day for the Tonga College (Toloa) and Queen Salote College (QSC) schools, as well as another for all FWC schools to participate which includes Tupou High School, Si’atoutai Theological Colleges and other church groups who wishes to make a few extra pa’anga on the day.
