ADI Cakobau School (ACS) today began its 70th anniversary celebrations, marking the schools journey since its establishment on October 1, 1948.

While speaking at the launching of the celebrations at the school in Sawani today, chief guest and former President Ratu Epeli Nailatikau reminded the students to continue to uphold everything the school represents.

He said the school was born from the idea to uphold traditional Fijian values and customs and has reared women in all aspects of life.

“Women who have made a difference wherever they are placed. It has made politicians, diplomats, civil servants, medical professionals, university lecturers, economists, chartered accountants and professionals in other fields,” Mr Nailatikau said.

He said ACS had an outstanding legacy and the current students must continue to uphold this legacy in the years to come.

Hundreds of students, ex-scholars, families and friend gathered at the school ground culminating the launching of the week-long festival.
