THE Old Capital of Fiji is already abuzz in the lead-up to the much anticipated Levuka Public School reunion this weekend.

More than 100 former scholars from abroad are already enjoying the Levuka weather and organiser Mathew Robinson said they looked forward to a much bigger celebration from tomorrow.

Former scholars from US and Canada gave six computers to Levuka Public Primary School which coincided with the opening of the school's new computer room.

"Today (yesterday) is a free day and there will be a picnic at the Ovalau Resort for old scholars who are already here while we also await the arrival of the other old scholars — about 150 — from Suva and the West today.

"There will be a traditional welcome for them today at Levuka Vakaviti before the grand celebration tomorrow."

The main celebration will begin tomorrow with a march around the Old Capital led by the Fiji Police Band to Nasau Park where the whole day celebration will be centred.

Mr Robinson said a barrel night would cap off tomorrow's event at the Levuka Town Hall while a sports day would precede the island night on Saturday.

A farewell church service will be held on Sunday.
