Substantial role

SAKENASA Varea, a former scholar of Levuka Public School, says the school being the oldest in Fiji continues to play a substantial role in nurturing and preparing its students in withstanding the rigours and trials of life.

While another memorable reunion is in line for the school, Mr Varea believes it is time former scholars reflect on contributions that were made by Levuka's very own merchants.

"Who will ever forget the contribution made to the school by Levuka's own merchants like Ambalal, Gulabdas, Damodar, Vallabh, Parshottam, Narsey, Maneklal, Young Yet, Yet Poh and Kang Kee Tong, Ping," Mr Varea said.

"As well as Vithal Bhai, Kishore, the late Raman Vagh, Katudrau and that lovable and almost immortal couple, Len and Lina Wong, all of whom who have provided immense assistance through debts to parents who now and again have encountered problems in meeting the provision of much needed funds for uniforms, books, shoes, pens, pencils and even groceries."
