Former students of Suva Grammar School came out in numbers today to support the initiative of their 80s decade which aims to provide valuable flood protection and risk reduction benefits to the coastal areas in Laucala.

While speaking to fijivillage News during the mangrove planting initiative, Keshav Maharaj who resides in New Zealand urged youths and students to be leaders of tomorrow and be a beacon of light as we fight crime against drugs and other issues.

He says things have changed in Fiji and the elders need to lead their youths by providing programs like clean-ups, mangrove planting and other initiatives that will benefit their future.

He adds that he will be travelling to Fiji every year to be part of their school's celebration that also involves programs that will protect our coastal ecosystems.

Tamsy Simpson Griffin of Savusavu who came all the way from Australia says mangrove planting is an initiative that the Grammar committee has come up with and it's such a good initiative.

The 80s decade will hold a Rock & Roll 80s theme party at the Royal Suva Yacht Club from 6pm to 12pm tonight. Tickets are $50 per person.

Tomorrow, the 60s decade will attend an assembly at the school and the Millennials will conduct a clean-up at the school from 9am.

On Friday, there will be a Lighthouse at Coconut Island Party at the Suva Bowling Club from 6pm to 12 midnight.

The Grammar Diamond Jubilee Ball will be held at the Vodafone Arena at 6pm Saturday.
