RAKIRAKI's Penang Sangam High School will play host to about 1500 students and guests from around Fiji for the weekend.
The life and work of saint and the founder of the Then India Sanmarga Ikya (TISI), Sewak Ratnam Sadhu Kuppuswami, will be celebrated today and tomorrow.
Organiser and TISI Rakiraki president Sanmogam Goundar said the life of Sadhuji was full of sacrifices.
"We are privileged to host this year's program and show how Sadhu Swami played a pivotal role in the lives of the Indian people, and how he founded the Sangam organisation here in Rakiraki," he said.
All Sangam administered schools on Viti Levu will send up to 50 students to Rakiraki.
Today will see the students involved in role plays, dance items, poster competitions and art exhibitions.
Participants will embark on a padh yatra or a walk from Penang to Mullau, where the Sadhu is believed to have started his first community school.
