In 1956 this school started at Wailada in a native Fijian bure. The first teacher was Mrs. Lavenia Volau Soqosoqo. The first manager was the British Colonial Secretary Mr. Allen Parker back in 1956 to 1958.In 1959 the school relocated to the present site and was registered in the Education Ordinance of 1960 on the 28th December, 1960. The first building materials came from an American timber company. The elders of Lami walked down to the junction and carried the materials up the track to the present site.

Our Principle:

To live our dreams and make it a reality, little by little, day by day, one step at a time. To make the impossible possible, dedicated, devoted and commited and to be determine to give our best each step of the way through out an academic year and to make a change, a difference in the individuals.
