Archbishop Peter Loy Chong, ap­plauded the coura­geous women who have be­come lead­ers in their own right. Archibishop Chong, while pre­sid­ing over the thanks­giv­ing mass at Saint Joseph’s Sec­ondary School’s 60 years di­a­mond ju­bilee cel­e­bra­tion in Suva yes­ter­day, said: “We should not only look back at the past, but look for­ward to the fu­ture.”

Provin­cial Leader of the Saint Joseph of Cluny reli­gious or­derSis­ter Al­li­son Ma­cal­is­ter said the sis­ters had man­aged to estab­lish a school of ex­cel­lence.

Sis­ter Ma­cal­is­ter, who is also a for­mer pupil of the school, said the dream has been kept alive all these years, and thanked the alumni groups from all over the world who came from as far as Amer­ica, United King­dom, Canada, Aus­tralia and New Zealand to be part of the week­long cel­e­bra­tion. Pres­i­dent of St Joseph’s Alum­nae Pule Sukainaivalu said: “2016 has been a very promis­ing year as we mark the di­a­mond an­niver­sary of the school as a qual­ity and holis­tic ed­u­ca­tion for many young women.”

The old­est serv­ing sis­ter of SJSS, 99-year-old An­gela Cavey was given the hon­our of cut­ting the ju­bilee cake.
