“This is one of the proudest moments for us as a school to win both the national titles from big schools in Suva,” Prasad said.

“I’m so proud of the boys for managing to take away the boys title from Marist Brothers and bring it to the Western division.

“The girls have done a tremendous job in defending their title for the past six years and they have made so many sacrifices. This is one of the biggest achievements for the school.”
