Flutters of blue flags in the wind, a blue cake and a choir decked in blue marked Fiji Day celebrations on October 10, 2019.

Fiji gained independence in 1970 and five years before that, the Pacific Theological College established its foundations at its current location in Nasese, Suva.

College Principal Reverend Professor Dr. Upolu Va’ai said the open hearts of the Vanua of Fiji in accepting and hosting PTC on its shores for well over a century should be acknowledged and celebrated.

Rejoicing in Fiji Day, the Fijian ethnic community hosted their fellow students, friends and family from across the Pacific islands to a morning tea and serenaded them with old Fijian classics and cheer.
