People have questioned us as to why we have chosen to build such an enormous dwelling, let me re-assure us that its not the size of the dwelling that matters but what matters most is how much we value GOD in our hearts. I believe that one day when people will stand and marvel at the completed chapel they will also remember that it is the impression of how much we (the RKSOB of today) value GOD in our hearts..
This is the 18th year since the foundation stone of our Chapel was laid by the Qase ko Bau (Chief supridentant of the Bau Methodist Church Circuit of which RKS is a part of). in 1991. The dream of building a church for RKS started in the 1940s/50s when the first pioneers of the school who first occupied the land of Lodoni. Our forefathers of the school would then have an annual “soli” collection which was kept for the building of the RKS Chapel.
Although at that time we dont have a proper chapel, sunday service was always held at various places, Cakobau Hall for the 1960s (which was later convereted as domitory – ie domitory with lali boys clock). Later it was shifted to the now dining hall for the 70s and 80s after which it has now been shifted to the RKS Hall until today.
The building of the RKS Chapel has been an OBs project. From its begining in 1994 to today, all money used so far has been from the pockets of those dear OBs (most of whom have passed on and the few that are still remaining) that carry within them the Delainakaikai PASSION to build a chapel for RKS, along with the contribution from the Parents of RKS since the 1990s.
This appeal is to all OBs (here in Fiji and abroad, most of you i believe have always wanted to contribute to this project of ours but have not been informed). We are counting on your Delainakaikai SPIRIT and COMRADSHIP to come together with us in the next two years so that we can complete this Chapel for RKS as a token of thanks for the good things that RKS has taught us.
GOD BLESS RKS
