STUDENTS from International School Suva (ISS) celebrated their 40th anniversary yesterday with sporting activities, guest speeches from alumni members and some song and dance items.
Speaking at the anniversary celebrations was former scholar and co-founder of the school Gaetane Austin who said the school had reached a milestone and hoped to be able to move forward as they grew.
"We have a school to be proud of. It is not perfect, nothing in life ever, but it provides a balanced curriculum to a variety of nationalities," Ms Austin said.
"This in itself is a feat, as the school has to establish a standard which is not particularly geared to any one country."
She said she was proud to be a part of establishing a rare exchange of cultures between the local nationalities Fiji had and those visiting from of other countries.
Also at the event as an alumni member and a previous headgirl was former Miss South Pacific Merewalesi Nailatikau.
"We are privileged to have been part of a school that offered a rich education to its students and it is about how we use our facilities to reach out to the community, which was the main thing that I took with me from ISS," she said.
