Tonga High School alumni are hosting a formal 65th and 66th celebration in Nuku’alofa this week. The event coincides with the Heilala Week Festival as well as King’s Birthday. The school’s 65th anniversary was postponed since King George V died last year. The celebration started yesterday 3 with a welcoming reception hosted by 1975 – 1979 ex-students.
Today’s program began with a street parade by all classes behind students carrying signs that designate each class and year. It was followed by a lunch hosted by classes of 1950-1955 and a fundraising for the school cultural events. It continued on to night with a singing competition by all chapters as well as Individual Talent Show.
The event will end on Sunday 7 with a combined Church Services at the Free Wesleyan Church’s Falelotu Senituli in Nuku’alofa
