ADI Cakobau School has celebrated its 64th birthday.
The school was established on October 1, 1948 and while the 620 students sang a birthday song yesterday, a bigger celebration is planned for Saturday.
"We just started our annual examinations this week so we did not want to disrupt or distract the girls from their studies," said principal Salote Nawalowalo.
The celebration on Saturday is expected to draw hundreds of former scholars, families and friends.
Mrs Nawalowalo said they also hoped the former scholars would help the students prepare submissions to the Constitution Commission.
"Most of our old scholars are well-established women in their communities and society, so it would be a good opportunity for them to brainstorm with our students about their submissions.
"Other than that, we will have speeches and a dinner with the ACS family to mark the celebration. It won't be as big because we are focused on the girls' academic work and annual examinations."
Mrs Nawalowalo said the school had come a long way with the motto 'leave the world better than you found it'.
"The whole teaching program revolves around the students learning the knowledge they need to become women of influence who leave a mark everywhere they are.
"Former teachers and principals have worked hard to preserve the tradition and culture of the school and also to try achieve excellence not only academically but in other areas."
