A Nadi Muslim College reunion in Surrey, British Columbia, Canada, was such a success that organ­isers are looking at doing it all over again.

Around 30 former scholars who attended the college be­tween 1980 and 2000 got together last Sunday at the Madina Restaurant Ball.

There was an air of anticipation and excitement about the reunion said spokes­person Irshaad Mo­hammed, who was a student from 1982 to 1987.

Mr Mohammed said the event and memories was the brainchild of Rah­numa Rehman, who through a Facebook page, planned the first reunion outside of Fiji.

“After almost a year of planning, many, many phone calls, emails and messages the date was set for the get together,” he said.

Mr Mohammed said amid exclamations of “how did you get old,” “class clown”, “besties”, “we still look hot”, “want­ed”, and “my high school crush”, the former students en­joyed three hours of mix and mingle and the mouth savor­ing dinner.

The former students have also pledged to help the under­privileged students in corroboration with the NMC.

“There have been discussions about raising funds soon to help out the needy students of NMC,” Mr Mohammed said.

“Information would be shared between the school contact and the ex- students, the needy identified, and funds would then be made available.”

A future reunion is expected to be even bigger and plans are already underway to include former students from out­side the province.
