FORMER students of Adi Cakobau School yesterday gathered at their recently acquired headquarters in Suva to fundraise for projects earmarked for next year.

ACS old girls from the 1940s were present at the one-day soli at their headquarters in Knollys St.

"We had invited presidents of other school old scholars associations in the country and we are very pleased that they have made it today," said ACSOG national president Adi Litia Qionibaravi.

"We extended our invitations to the presidents of Nasinu Secondary, Queen Victoria School, Ratu Kadavulevu School, St Joseph's Secondary, Marist Brother's High School and some other well established educational institutes in the country."

The gathering also saw former scholars now residing in Australia and New Zealand attending the function.

Last year's fundraising collected $84,935.45 with the target set at $100,000.

Adi Litia said this year the target was increased to $150,000 and even before the celebrations had begun yesterday, they managed to collect $47,000.

"We are confident that we are going to reach our target this year. We are so happy with the turnout," she said.

The organisation has 22 branches altogether with 12 locally based and 10 overseas.

The ACSOG organisation purchased a double-storey building and a freehold land to the value of $570,000.
