THE president of the Marist Old Boys in Fiji has called on all former Marist students to mobilise for the upcoming MoBULAise (pronounced mobilise) event and 75th year of multi-racial education in Fiji.
Nesbitt Hazelman said the event was launched at a school assembly at the Marist Brothers' High School's Lambert Hall last Monday.
"Marist chapters in the west and around the world will be working round the clock to ensure they are a part of the celebrations, charting a new course for the Marist Old Boys association with their former school, raising funds for prioritised projects for the school and to also be a part of the attractive activities that begin in the burning west and end in our hometown," Mr Hazelman said.
The event begins in Lautoka and ends in Suva on October 20 with about 1000 former students from Fiji and abroad expected to attend. It will culminate with the joint celebration of 75 years of multiracial education in Fiji.
Mr Hazelman also announced that the Marist Old Boys would dissolve their current constitution and adopt the new Trust Deed document which would strategically reposition our efforts to better support the school and the Marist Education Trust Board.
"Ever since the first brothers set foot on Fiji's soil, their message of love, respect, humility, hard work, family spirit and equality has spread from their institutions of education to the private sector and the government," he said.
We invite our brothers from around the world and the country to be a part of our celebrations as we step back in time to ensure we steer the Marist community forward past the obstacles and to a better future for all."
