Ex-scholars of Holy Family School in Labasa are hoping to raise more than $20,000 during their three- day reunion. The reunion, which takes place in Suva, began yesterday.

More than 200 ex-scholars from around the globe had been expected to be part of the event this week.

The Holy Family School Ex-Scholars Reunion Association international president, Vera Chute, said the reunion was the second one to take place; the first being held in 2012.

She said the main objective was to bring the school’s former students together and fundraise.

“Usually ex-scholars from Australia, New Zealand, the United States of America, United Kingdom and Fiji come to meet and catch up, spend time together and have fun. And at the same time they give something back to our schools,” Mrs Chute said.

The reunion was officially opened by Father Richard O’ Sullivan at the Laucala Bay Catholic Church in Suva.

“We will be giving our soli and giving something back to the two schools.

“So whatever money that will be raised will go towards the academic improvement of both the schools. Hopefully we can raise around $20,000,” Mrs Chute said.

The theme for their reunion is “Sustaining Quality Education”.”

The reunion will close with a ball at the Defence Club tomorrow evening.
