St Mary's Primary School

from Peceli
The day I visited St Mary's Primary School in Labasa town there was a group of young people from overseas who came to teach First Aid to the students. They were teaching the boys and girls about bones and muscles. They visited several schools in the Labasa area. They came a year ago also. A nice morning tea was prepared for the visiting team. The Principal is in the blue shirt in the photo of the morning tea and Father Petueli on the right.

Hello Ratu Mo,
Are you from Labasa then?
Peceli has gone to golf this morning as the sun is shining for a change. It's his 71st birthday today so we might go out to Smorgies for dinner tonight.

Hello,
We are from Vatuadova and Nukutatava beach if you know that place. Lived there in the 70s and go back often. It's still the Friendly North though many people have drifted towards Suva these days.

I still remember that place...Its past Tabia, or somewhere there, I guess...We did a field trip there when I was in class 4 at Saint Marys. Those were the fun ol' days.

Bula Mo,
It's before Tabia but going west from Labasa it's past Wailevu, stop opposite Vatuadova village and walk or drive to the beach. 25 minutes walk perhaps.

I think this is great.. I am an ex-scholar my self and was excited to come across this blog..Its however sad to know that the Revd Petueli Emose was called to rest three weeks ago and Fr Yusuf sahayam has now retired and if I am correct he is now the schools Chaplain- both St Mary's and All Saints..may be we should make an effort to get all the ex-scholars and talk about doing sumthin for the school..Great blog again guys ...

Isa my school. I really miss the blue dress and the white belt, and the colourful sports uniforms on Fridays.

Hi i'm an ex scholar too of St Mary's and i agree with some of you guys that there should be a get together or something sop we can give something back to this school. I just came back to Labasa. and saw the school and i am struck at how old and derelict the school looks. Similar to the other buildings here in the town. I'm trying to create a facebook page, so look out in the future. We'll try and get everybody to join in on the page and connect with each other.
