Student roll increases

INTERNATIONAL School Suva is excited for what will transpire in the school and in the country this year.

The school welcomed its students, parents and teachers to a school assembly yesterday, welcoming 536 students and four new teachers.

"2014 is an exciting year for the country and for the school," ISS principal Dr Anna Marsden said.

"There is progress in the school with our new building, our numbers are going up and we feel buoyant.

"But that buoyancy is mirrored in and around Fiji as we look towards 2014 for elections."

Dr Marsden said there was a lot of excitement building in the school, in the country and overseas.

"I think we are all waiting to see what happens. It's a good time for Fiji, and it's a good time to be in Fiji."

She encouraged the ISS students to be true to themselves as they began another school year. Dr Marsden said while teachers and subjects could teach students a range of things, growth was up to each student.

"You need to look inside yourself for your integrity, for your honesty; you look inside yourself to be the person you want to be and to treat people the way you want to be treated.

"Schools are places of education and subjects, but they are also where young people grow and that growing is so exciting. As a teacher, to watch young people grow is just magical."

She said teachers had a very important role to play as they educated students on what they needed to go through in life.
