News and information service for Banaban Network Worldwide!

These are the first Class photographs that were taken of the Banaban Primary School, Nuku, Rabi, Fiji. Part of Stacey King Collection 1993.

The photographs of these young Banabans were taken 16 years ago and now many of these children will be adults and probably have families of their own. Some of the teachers are now retired. Thanks to the teachers at the time we were able to photograph the whole school population and record this 'moment in time' in Rabi history.

If you would like a higher resolution copy of any of the photographs please email me direct at admin@banaban.com with you email address so I can email you back a copy.

If you would like to add more information to the names of students appearing in each class please add them here in the comment section

Hi Everyone and thanks to Stacey for these lovely photos. I don't know almost everyone in these photos except my dad's brother, Benetito Tamoa and my cousin Tebaruru Tengata. I am sure I have more relatives in these photos but I hardly know them - as I wasn't born or raised in Rabi.

Cheers
