ALMOST seventy years ago, Adi Cakobau School was established to become the premier institution for the education of emerging young women leaders in Fiji.

The school has produced over the last seven decades women leaders who have changed the landscape of leadership and engagement in the country.

In 2018 the ACS Alumnae, the school family and its community will celebrate the 70th year of the school’s inception.

The platinum anniversary activities will include public seminars, community cultural exhibitions, social events, awareness activities, rural outreach programmes, career support programmes for current students and the production of media products.

The pre-Platinum activities will begin with a logo competition which invites designs from all Fiji nationals and residents and which opens today.

ACS Old Girls Incorporated President Ilisapeci Movono said the competition would reward the winning design with a FJ$700 prize.

“We are looking for a logo that reflects the culture and ethos of the school, its journey over the past 70 years and its vision in the 21st Century.

The design should be dynamic, unique, creative, and current,” Mrs Movono said. The competition begins July 5 and closes August 11 at 5pm.

The details of the competition can be found on www.facebook.com/ACSGoingPlatinum “

ACS was built for the betterment of Fijian women and its very inception testifies to the belief that our leaders at the time had for the importance of raising women to positions of leadership,” Ms Movono said.

“In that respect, we wanted to include every member of the community who may be interested in the role that the school has in advancing the place of women and in advancing education for all Fijians.”
