Duo reminisce good old days

Tuesday, July 08, 2014

THE first thing Alan Ricketts and Daniel Bower did when they met in Levuka over the weekend was to look for their Form One picture back in 1961.

The picture — one of the main ones on the school notice board — took the duo back to their school days at LPS.

Mr Ricketts, who resides in Australia, said it was good to come back and reminisce the old days and meet with old friends.

"It's been well organised and we are really surprised, it's been a hectic few days we have been here but we loved it," Mr Ricketts said.

"We haven't seen some of them for quite a while but we meet some on a few occasions.

"Not much changes have been done to the school and these buildings should be preserved the way they are as it was the first school in Fiji and it should be maintained."

Suva resident Mr Bower said it was good to meet with other former scholars and looked forward to meeting again in five years' time.

Their advice to current students of LPS is to concentrate on school work which will take them a long way. "A lot of fields are open now, if not academic it can be sports or other fields."
