THE Fiji School of Medicine students' association descended on the National Gymnasium on Saturday in a show of cultural pride to celebrate its annual student association cultural night.
And the cultural night, billed as one of the premier events on the school's social calendar, did not disappoint.
Fiji School of Medicine Student Association president Priyant Chandra said the night was the culmination of a lot of planning and preparation by all involved.
"It's an amazing culmination to a month-long journey for all those performing tonight," Mr Chandra said.
He said the work of the student association social and cultural committees had brought the show to fruition.
"I would also like to thank the rest of my student association members as well as the whole FSM student body for their assistance," he said.
"In addition to being the premier event on the Fiji School of Medicine calendar, the cultural night has developed into an amazing tradition that we as students can proudly declare as our own," he said.
The cultural night, set to the theme "Pride of the Blue Continent" featured all the Pacific Island countries that make up the CMNHS student body putting up a cultural display telling the stories of their countries.
Dean of FSM Professor Ian Rouse said the cultural night was something he would not miss.
He said he gave up the opportunity to watch the first game of last year's Rugby World Cup to attend the cultural night.
