Rusiate Tudravu, Assistant Commissioner of Police and the Force’s chief operations is a proud old scholar of Nasinu Secondary School.

Yesterday, he joined more than five hundred old scholars and current students of his alma mater to celebrate the school’s 35th anniversary.

Chief guest at the celebration, Prime Minister Voreqe Bainimarama highlighted the fact that since 1980 the school had provided opportunities for Fijians and also regional students.

“The establishment of the school was intended to grant these students the same access to education and opportunity as any other Fijian to ensure that where they grew up did not limit their options in life,” he said.

In 1980, the school’s total enrolment stood at 120 students; today the roll stands at 895 with 49 teachers and 17 support staff.

This year, the school has taken in 34 Pacific Island students; 21 from Nauru, Nine from Tuvalu, one from Papua New Guinea and three from Vanuatu.

Former school teacher, Apolosi Qata also attended the celebrations. He said he was among the first batch of teachers who established the school in 1980.

“Many of the students I taught are now holding very high positions in the Government like ACP Rusiate Tudravu.

“I am really proud of former students of this school and I am also glad that I was also part of their lives in Nasinu Secondary School,”Mr Qata said.
