NARRUHN HAPPY TO BE BACK
Rosie is impressed with the changes taking place at Saint Joseph’s Secondary School. It has been 56 years since she graduated from the school. Ms Narruhn travelled from Oklahoma, USA, to be part of the school’s 60th Diamond Jubilee that begun with the opening mass at the Sacred Heart Cathedral yesterday. “I made my reservations in January so I do not miss the celebrations which we have been waiting for a couple of years now,” she said. “I feel there is a big difference in what SJSS was in 1960 and what it is now which I am glad happened because as time goes, we need to grow and provide better education for our children. “Back in our times, we had nuns from Australia and New Zealand, who taught us all the subjects in school and extra circular activities too,” Ms Narruhn said. She said she was surprised to see how the school in Suva’s Waimanu Road has developed from the last time she had been there. “It is good to see how the school itself has progressed and how the girls are focused on their education which back then was a bit hard as not all of the girls had opportunities to attend school.” She encouraged students to get as much education as they can, so they never feel left behind. “Life has a lot of challenges and if you are educated enough, you are capable of fighting those challenges and that’s what I would like to encourage the students to do is follow their heart and learn,” she said.
