THREE women who were among the first females enrolled at Xavier College in Ba are in the country to attend the inaugural '70s reunion this weekend.

They were among the first females to attend Xavier College when the school broke tradition and accepted girls for the first time in 1970.

Betty-Anne Ho (nee Lum), Rosaline McDiarmed (nee Lum) and Angeline Lau (nee Lum) are descendants of two families who ran a well-known business called Lum Lock & Sons in Ba in the '60s and '70s.

Mrs Ho was the first head girl at Xavier College.

"We are very excited to be in Fiji," she said.

"My experiences at Xavier helped to develop me into a well-rounded person, especially after I left Fiji in the late '70s and emigrated to Honolulu, Hawaii."

She recently retired after 38 years in business management for a large retail outlet in Honolulu.

The Xavier College '70s Reunion will be held this weekend at the school.
