Saraswati College celebrated their Golden Jubilee amongst teachers and students, highlighting the hard work of the founders of the Saraswati Ramayan Mandali.

President of the Saraswati Ramayan Mandali and manager for the Saraswati schools Sat Narayan acknowledged the founders of the school with their immense hard work to get the school to this prestige occasion.

Mr Narayan said: “The Mandali has been in existence for the last 56 years.

“We had faced a lot of challenges in the beginning as we had to relocate the school here to Nausori when our lease had expired but we overcame all challenges and here we are celebrating our 50 years of existence.

“This occasion gave us an opportunity to look back at our progress and to remember the founding fathers who planted the seed and idea of establishing a school.”

The Ramayan Mandali was the founding authority for the school.

“The commitment and perseverance of our distinguished members of the Sarawati Ramayan Mandali has played an important role in the development of all Saraswati schools in Fiji,” Mr Narayan said.

High Commissioner of India Vishvas Sapkal said: “Government of India is a partner in the development process of Fiji and we do a lot of Human Resource Development Co-operation in Fiji.

“We give almost 200 scholarships to Fijian students who go to India and take part in the training programmes in various faculties.”
