SUBRAIL Park was a sea of blue and white as hundreds of students, former scholars and well-wishers gathered yesterday to celebrate the 60th anniversary of Labasa College, the only government school on Vanua Levu.
The event started with a march through the Northern Town with stakeholders and some government officials joining in to mark the diamond jubilee celebrations.
Speaking on behalf of the Prime Minister who was supposed to be the chief guest, Minister for Youth and Sports Commander Viliame Naupoto said the college had grown.
"Labasa College is well known for its achievements for more than six decades since its inception as a technical institution in 1954, a boarding school in 1974 and a secondary school in 1995," he said.
"The college is an iconic school as it has consistently produced good results over the years and sustaining a legacy of excellence which is appropriate and relevant to today's celebration.
"I acknowledge the contribution your colleagues have made towards the human resource needs of this country. Today, we have people who studied in this college holding prominent positions in all walks of life here in Fiji."
