INTERNATIONAL School Suva students and management are excited now that work is finally going ahead on their new $5.5million three-storey building.

Principal Dr Anna Marsden said they hoped the building would be complete in 18 months.

"This building has been a long-time coming. We are extremely excited, everything finally worked out," she said.

"We see a very positive future for the school and it's going to be a terrific new building," Dr Marsden said.

The building will house the administration offices, an ampitheatre, a library and a cafeteria.

Dr Marsden said the building was the first step to a larger building plan for the school, adding there was also a vision of having a boarding school.

"It is interesting to see how the school has developed over the years. It has taken us a while to get here but we are finally here.

"The school's past and future are tied up in the country's past and future — we cannot ignore that.

"And this new building will cater for our growing numbers in the years to come."
