A PLACE OF HOPE & POSSIBILITY
Dedicated to Creating a Better Present and Future for the Children of Fiji
Established 115 years ago in the Marist tradition, St Vincent College caters to 450 students including boarders. The students are aged between 5 and 18 years old. Many of the students’ families live either on the outer islands or the interior highlands, and most struggle to pay the school fees, which total less than $500 per year.
The children come from all over the Fijian Islands, Papua New Guinea and the Solomon Islands. Most of which cannot afford to attend other schools or come from troubled families. Many of the boarders are left at the school over the holidays as the parents cannot cope with collecting them to take them home for the holidays.
The school is lacking in the most basic furniture and learning staples, here are some areas of need:
Scarce and extremely simple.
The children receive religious connection at the school through Father Joe. He attends the school as a priest & counsellor to the students. He is an all-rounder that spends time talking to the staff and students and assisting them however best he can.
