A big roaring bula vinaka to the Majestic 80’s Decade! Wow what a decade! It was a unique time to be alive. The 80s decade Grammarians encountered:

  • Trying to figure out the Rubik’s Cube

  • The release of the Pac-Man video game

  • The release of the first IBM-PC

  • The first commercial cell phone call made

  • Introduction of the first Macintosh computer

  • Microsoft introduces Windows

  • First report of the Hole in the ozone

  • RUN DMC releases “Walk This Way”

  • CDs outselling vinyl records and tapes

  • Student protesters killed in China’s Tiananmen Square

  • The release of Gameboy

  • The Internet goes global …

While

  • Selling out school concert tickets to “I will Survive”

  • Cheering our top swimmers who later represented Fiji to the SP Games

  • Being decorous during the school prefects meeting with the Marist Boys to quell conflicts between the schools

  • Introduction of the grey sulu

  • Establishment of Form 7

  • And many more …

We look forward to supporting the SGSExSA in moving forward with our collective efforts to “Give back to Suva Grammar”.
