Ratu Kadavulevu School Old Scholars Association (RKSOSA) raised over $51,000 yesterday at the Lodoni Day celebrations. The event was held at the Ratu Sukuna Memorial School in Nabua.

The old scholars has new plans on building a Lodoni Resource Centre in Suva.

Association President, Alivereti Yaya said: “Lodoni Day is a day in a year, where we meet and contribute funds to help in the development of the school and the needs of the students.

“We have set up a plan to buy a piece of land in the city where we can build our Resource Centre. Last year we collected $60,000.00. Unfortunately this year is a bit less due because of Winston. Many of us were affected by the disaster.

“This is one of the joyous day for us old scholars because we get to meet out classmates, seniors and juniors as well. We also share our good moments back in the days,” he said.

“I really want to thank all the old scholars who turned up today and to those from overseas who have lend a hand.”

Mr Yaya encouraged the old scholars to work together, because they have a huge project at hand and they should also partake in their next meet, next year.

Ex-scholar Josaia Vulitali said: “This meeting really means a lot to me. I joined RKS in 1969 till 1975, house Degei. I am now a Lecture for Engineering at Fiji National University, I am really happy to be here today”
