MARIST Brothers' High School former and current students gathered at the school grounds to celebrate their 75th anniversary yesterday.
Old scholars from the US, Australia and New Zealand also gathered in numbers to mark one of the auspicious occasions for the school, with old scholars sharing their experience at the school with students.
Former pupil Doctor Sohan Singh said being part of the celebration brought back joyous memories for him.
Dr Singh was in MBHS from 1964 to 1967 and has lived in the US for several years.
He said he was amazed with the changes made within the school like the Lambert hall that now catered for all the students at the school.
"I never thought that I would be part of the 75th celebration and to meet up with former classmates," he said.
Former student Devlin Chung said he was proud to be called a Marist old boy because they were the first students to win the Deans trophy in 1965.
Mr Chung said they were also the first to start the red fire spirit which continues today.
"I would like to encourage students to be more passionate about their studies and also dedicate themselves to achieving their goals," he said.
Also part of the celebration were 30 students from Apifo'ou High School in Tonga.
Teacher Analena Ta'ai said the students were happy to be at the celebration, especially since it was their first trip to Fiji.
