THE Gwavili community last Friday celebrated the 80th anniversary of Gwavili Community School.
Located across the bay from Alotau, the school is said to be one of the oldest in Milne Bay.
It was founded on Aug 20, 1933, by Kwato Church missionaries.
Milne Bay Governor Titus Philemon joined Gwavili villagers and people from the surrounding Ealeba villages to celebrate the special day, which featured singing, dancing and feasting.
It was a special time for some former students who are now prominent leaders in the province and the country to return for a reunion.
Philemon, who gave K5,000 to the event, urged the people to continue to demonstrate attributes of caring and sharing.
He said that had ensured the school’s long existence.
The school enrols pupils in elementary to Grade Six.
He urged the students to study hard and benefit from subsidies and other initiatives the provincial government was introducing for secondary and tertiary students.
That includes the increase in the tertiary students scholarship assistance to K1 million from next year and the building of the province’s teachers college by 2015.
