hoi thanks for bringing it up again coz it reminds me of my good old times with a friend.. the funniest memory while i was at that school is when i was called to the principals office....... you know gaaa why... my name was written in the black book for being the naughtiest boy that year. it was in 2004 i think. a few days latter i was being expelled.......... the next week i was asked to come back to school...... men life was good there walking everyday for more than 4hrs, eating at peoples houses when we return home from school. Apart from this wonderful experiences, i would like to take this opportunity to apologies to Mr Alan, our principal that time, for being the naughtiest ked ever in my time.... Sorry. So present students please nanona ami reirei raoi keer tc

I WISH I AM AN EX- RHS SO THAT I CAN COMPARE THE FUN OF ENJOYABLE SCHOOL YEARS......HAHAHAHA kam nang funny with ur stories
I think u better get the words for the RHS song.This when the first form 4 started, way back in 1980s.Ask the old scholars, Teke,Teatu,Wenei,Temate n them, may be they will know better. Only few words that I can remember from the verses:
"" I. E a bon roko tokin ara reirei, ngaira first fouth formers mai iaon Rabi.
Te ririki te nga-rua-bubua-wanibwi,(1980), e raba te Atua n ana atatai."""
cho: Ai kamaura, te makuri,ma tia reirei nte RJSS (Bass: Rabi Junior Sec Sch)
E a bo te taai, n raure nako.
An tiku ma te rau tiakabo
""" II. Ara principal Tewaiki ma tia reirei.
Tewia,Abanetetake tia kabo
The tune is more like: " Isa isa vulagi lasa dina.........

Funny times in school was that...it was during prep and Mr Satendra Prasad was on duty and who was also our Biological science teacher in f/4,but during the day time in class he wrote on the board.."bring 25c each if you want to buy a science book" so class over but when we came back for prep the writing was still on the board so we decided to change the subject..so one of my friends changed it to.."bring 25c each if you want to observe n dissect the science teacher..opps!!! along came sir ba ena kaira te reirei...surprise...!!! to see the writing on the board...imagine if u were there eyes about to burst out...lol so angry that left us nakon te staffroom so we went n apologise but instead said I u all sure u want to observe n dissect the science teacher...omg...hahaha too bad...well we miss our sir a lot but thanks to him ba e reke naba buokara mairouna.
Good luck Mr Satendra n all my f/4 friends.
thank you teari fo initiating this network.. very much contributed to the ex rhs students and teachers. However, being part of such an institution that had nurtured most of the rabi new genrtn, what good deed could we repay her in return? the diversity of her ofsprings have covered the globe,,, believing that in utilizing this network something positive could be evolved and utilized back in whatever means possible... I was also part of this institution as a student.. and to tell you the truth,, there is no such enjoyable school life when you are with ur own people and particularly,, ur age group. Nevertheless, my days in rhs were short due to the misuse of time and regulations. however, i was fortunate enough to come back as a lecturer and in the process,,, contributed to the establishment of the form seven classroom. My suggestion goes back to the school.. look at the staffing situation of rhs? majority are from other ethenics and to make it worse,,, the feminity dominion is percievable. In retrospect, do not ignore the school of your people,, for graduates who frequently looked up to rural centres.. plis.. consider the banabans who need also the banaban to teach and guide them,,, my salutation is expressed to the current principal, the rev allan hedstrom for his determination and persevearance,, thank you sir and may god bless my beloved RHS.
