Rabuka says QVS will always be a special place with many fond memories for those who were educated there.

He adds that since the 2022 General Election, there are 11 former scholars in Parliament and it is prudent that they remember the values that they were brought up with to make good and accountable leaders.

The Prime Minister says as old scholars of QVS, they should focus on the idea behind the establishment of the school, which is to produce good leaders with a vision for unity and growth in our country.

Rabuka also gave his assurance to not only listen to the former scholars but current students as well, should there be a need for dialogue concerning the school.
