Students, teachers and former students of the Latter-Day Saints Church College yesterday marched to the beat of the Fiji National Youth Band. They marched down Ro Koboulevu Road to the school grounds in celebration of the 40th birthday of LDS Church College.

The theme of the celebrations was ‘40 years of service: Serving the Lord in Righteousness and Truth Unto the end’. This theme was chosen as it represented the holistic purpose of our school’s vision, which is to ensure that students enter to learn and go forth to serve.

One of the organisers of the celebrations, Vimal Kumar, said: “The purpose of the march today was to take a walk down memory lane using the very same corridors of road that over the last 40 years has been our turf in a spirit of togetherness and unity.

“It is way of celebrating our spirit of unity and togetherness by marching in solidarity to show our love and support for the school we love and adore.”

The purpose of celebrations was to celebrate the 40 years of the school’s existence.

“It is a celebration of our dedication on July 11th, 1976 when the school was dedicated by the then Commissioner of Church Education, Jeffery R. Holland,” Mr Kumar said.

“It is also a celebration of our unique school culture, our people, our students, our values, and all that we have accomplished over the last 40 years and a reminder of our purpose as a school, which is to help individuals and families become self-reliant through the gospel of Jesus Christ and to help them become productive members of society, spiritually, academically, socially, and physically.”

The march ended at the school grounds with a performance by the National Youth Band before all students and former students filed into the school’s gymnasium for a special devotion.

The celebrations end today with a picnic at Deuba beach for all students, former students, families and friends.
