PRESIDENT Ratu Epeli Nailatikau has congratulated the students of Levuka Public School for doing well in their academic studies.
Ratu Epeli, a former LPS student, joined in the 135th school anniversary celebrations on Friday at the Old Capital.
He led the march from the old MH building to Nasau Park — the celebration venue.
In addressing old scholars, current students and the Levuka community, he said he was proud to be part of the celebration.
"Old scholars and present students of LPS — much has been said about today's gathering and the gathering over the last couple of days," Ratu Epeli said.
"We have come together as a family and I am glad that I am here today and I look forward to the next 20 years and I hope that some of you will still be around at that time.
"I am glad to be here and glad to see that the school gathering from the report is going from strength to strength and I want to congratulate the principal, the staff and the parents and the community of Levuka for supporting the school."
Ratu Epeli said some former students who were not able to make it to the celebration missed a great opportunity to enjoy one another's company.
Sharing his days in Levuka as a member of the class of 1949, Ratu Epeli said he was proud to be back where his education began.
