Head girl remembers

THE pioneer head girl of Levuka Public School has urged current students to continue the legacy their predecessors have left for the school.

Alice Toganivalu, 83, could still remember her days at LPS and how the school had shaped her to become a better person in life.

"A friend of mine George Peterson was the head boy and I was the head girl in 1947," Mrs Toganivalu said in an interview yesterday.

"This was when I was 16 years old and I really enjoyed being educated at the school because I am from Vagadaci on Ovalau and I had the privilege to be given the opportunity to lead.

"LPS will always remain a good school and I was so proud to be brought up there many years ago."

While the school awaits another much-anticipated school reunion, the former head girl is eagerly looking forward to travel to Levuka despite her age saying she will ask one of her children to accompany her to the place she once called home so she can meet her former school mates again.

She added that while it may not be easy to travel around, she was excited about catch-up and the updates from her former scholars.
