Adi Cakobau School celebrated its 64th birthday anniversary yesterday.
Current and former students of the all-girls school gathered at the school hall around mid-day to join in the cheer and recollect principles that have shaped the prominent Sawani School to what it is sixty four years on.
Principal Salote Nawalowalo said the celebration served as a reminder to the girls of the school’s achievements and contribution to Fiji’s development.
She said the school was renowned for breeding educated women who now hold prominent positions in Government and also the private sector.
Mrs. Nawalowalo said the presence of former students helped current students to emulate examples of a respected woman in society.
“Our caurrent students look up to the old girls as role models and they instill good values of hardwork and determination to our girls,” she said.
Chief Guest at the event was ACSOG President Adi Litia Qionibaravi.
“This year’s school birthday celebration is a small one for the students and the old-girls. We have had immense support from parents. It’s the thought that counts.”
Mrs. Nawalowalo mentioned that ACS had come a long way in terms of grooming women who become the epitome of a respected and successful Fijian woman.
The old girls were also expected to assist the students in making draft submissions for the constitution commission.
“Today (yesterday) is also important because the present students along with former students will be divided into four groups according to their different school houses and the old girls will guide us in compiling what the girls think should be included in the new constitution,” Ms Nawalowalo said.
She encouraged ACS girls to remain determined in their endeavors and strive to hold important positions of responsibility in the country.
“Leave the world better than you found it!”
The school boasts a roll of 620 students.
