Heavy rain did not deter the big crowd that turned up at Adi Cakobau School grounds yesterday to celebrate the 2018 Waterlily Pageant.

Opening the event, Permanent Secretary for the Office of the Prime Minister Yogesh Karan said the school had been performing well with high academic achieve­ments as well as excellent per­formance in extracurricular ac­tivities, in maintaining its school culture.

“The school too has remained committed and steadfast in its role of preparing young women lead­ers for our nation, a trend from the past and continuing unwaveringly today,” he said.

“For this, I commend and pay tribute to all the past administra­tors of the school, the parents and guardians, the past students, who are alumni members of the active ACSOG Association and all sup­porters.

“I understand that this is a re­vival of an age-old tradition of the school that normally was run only for the boarders and as a Saturday night activity to train girls on con­fidence and public speaking skills.

“It is now transformed to a larger scale to engage parents and fans and provide a forum for our stu­dents to expose their talents, build their confidence and enhance other learning skills.

“The strong bonds of the ACS fam­ily have always been a spectacular learning model for many schools around us. With this bonding, there is no doubt that ACS will continue to prosper in all facets of life.”

Organised by the parents’ execu­tive committee, which includes the teachers’ reps and the old girl’s reps, the event started last year.

The event was filled with music and entertainment by students and teachers.

The International Youth Fellow­ship group from South Korea also joined the event yesterday and en­tertained the crowd.
