Public holiday announced for Tupou College 150 anniversary

The government of Tonga has announced June 22, 2016 a special public holiday to mark Tupou College’s 150th anniversary.

The oldest boys boarding school in the kingdom is celebrating its anniversary next month with the first event on June 17.

The six-day celebration will be concluded on June 24 with an evening prayer service organised by the college and representatives from Newington College in Sydney.

The two colleges have a long history of connection since the founder of Tupou College Late Dr James Eagan Moulton was a lecturer at Newington before he was approached by Late King Tupou 1 to come to Tonga and started the college in 1866.
