THE people of Rabi are focused on preserving their culture and tradition by passing knowledge and skills to the younger generation.

This was evident when the students of Banaban Primary School performed the traditional Banaban dance called batere for the delegation from the Ministry of Women and Social Welfare who visited the island on Wednesday.

Rabi Council of Leaders vice-chairman Bineati Sigrah said the significance of culture and tradition were taught at the three primary schools and the only secondary school in Rabi.

"Parents and teachers alike show similar level of interest towards maintaining culture," Mr Sigrah said.

He said teaching of traditional dances and craft making took place at homes and schools, and the children showed pride in learning their culture and tradition.
