Daylight Savings kicks in until March 6, 2011

IF you haven't wound your clocks forward by an hour, today is the day to do so as daylight savings kicks in until March 6, 2011.

According to Section Five of the Daylight Savings Act 1998, daylight savings began at 2am today and members of the public are advised to switch their clocks one hour ahead to 3am.

Yesterday, Vodafone Fiji users were sent text alerts reminding customers to turn their timepieces forward an hour before they go to bed. Daylight savings time (DST) was first initiated on November 29 last year following a recommendation by government minister Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum, who then held the justice, tourism and commerce portfolios.

His proposal was for DST to end on April 25 this year. Later, a wave of public discontent resulted in the State amending the decision to allow the country to return to the standard time a month earlier.

Cabinet had approved amendments to the Daylight Saving Act 1998 to allow for the daylight saving period to be declared in Fiji from November 29, 2009 to 3am on April 25, 2010.

This means school students are required to be in school by 8am daylight savings time.
