THE business community in Levuka town is anticipating the arrival of about 150 people to mark the 135th anniversary of Levuka Public School and the reunion of former students.
Levuka Town special administrator Suliana Sandys said the old capital was gearing up for the celebrations and this was evident with new products sold at almost every retail outlet in the town square.
With two hats to put on — one being the special administrator and the other as a former student of the school — Ms Sandys is also looking forward to the celebrations as it will allow her and her former classmates to reminisce the good old times spent in LPS.
"With the business people they are looking forward because new people are coming in and then there are people who will want to buy souvenirs," she said.
Ms Sandys, who is also a former vice-principal of LPS, said her days in the school were the best days of her life. She attended LPS from 1960 to 1972 and later went on to teach at the school from 1985 until 2009.
"Those were the very formative years of my life and we've got a lot to thank the teachers at that time. They taught us subjects that were in the curriculum. They taught us etiquette and supported the teachings that were given to us from home," she said.
