Can the meaning of members also include those who never attended the Nadi District School but are or will be financial supporters of this organisation?

Tara riki na cola,

It is possible to include persons who have not attended the school but will be implemental to the aims and objectives of the organisation.

The constitution as shown herein has not been formally adopted by the organisation and it is possible to include a supplementary provision that will govern the admission of such "supporter" members.

Also, Clause 18 of the constitution provides the manner in which the said constitution may be altered.


Vina Du riki,

Inoke B Lutumailagi.

Cola vina taucoko na members and supporters

If non-scholars are willing to contribute financially or whatever other ways, I suppose they are most welcome to "board the ship".

As Nox has explained, the constitution can be amended, altered to suit that purpose.

Qa nia qaya tavale Vuanimasei qi si waraki nia koto se o cei mequ videredere qaya i "Tavua" baletia sa rewarewa tu boto na siga. Kei balebale ko ya sa confirm taki na sota ina siga ni mate (22/03) and "Congratulations" to Inoke on his admission to the bar. You have made us proud of the old scholars and the vanua of Nadi.

Your feedbacks are most welcome as fast as possible as Easter is only 3 weeks away. I've met some old scholars and managed to pass word verbally.

Loloma taucoko
