A MEET and greet program organised in Suva by the Levuka Public School reunion committee turned out to be a success as many old scholars gathered to spend time with former classmates.
The meet and greet program at the Defence Club also marked the beginning of the four-day 173rd celebration which is scheduled to take place in Levuka from Wednesday to Saturday.
Organising committee member Matthew Robinson said the program for the four-day festival would be finalised tomorrow.
Many former scholars of the school are travelling from overseas to be part of the festival.
President Ratu Epeli Nailatikau, a former student of the school, was also present at the meet and greet on Saturday night.
"A big crowd turned out, just to allow us to get to know each other before the actual reunion back in Levuka," Mr Robinson said.
He said the reunion, held every five years, included the meet and greet which marked the soft opening of the program.
