ABOUT 200 people will converge on Levuka over the course of this week to celebrate the 135th anniversary of the Levuka Public School.

And every hotel in town is booked to accommodate the flood of people coming from all over the world to pay tribute to a school which helped shape the lives of so many people.

In an interview yesterday, president of the school's old scholars in Levuka Matthew Robinson said everyone attending was excited about the events lined up for the week.

And the first batch of excited old scholars who came in from abroad left Suva's Holiday Inn bound for Levuka yesterday afternoon.

"Some will come to Levuka today (yesterday) and others tomorrow (today) because a lot of the local people are still busy at the moment," Mr Robinson said.

"The main event though, is on Friday — that's where we'll have a march, some floats and a procession, so it's going to be similar to a big carnival procession, so everyone's looking forward to that."

He said other activities included a visitation to the school and the donation of computers to the school from the old scholars.

"It has been a while since we've had a really big carnival like this in Levuka so it should be good."
