Hi,
I was a student from 1973 to 1980 and have many good and funny hillarious memories of the school. My only son Henry Waqatairewa also attended class one to class three from 2002 to 2004 before moving to Sydney.

Love the school and hope to live long enough to see my grandsons attending one day.

Would love to reconnect with anyone that attended primary school with me back then.

Vinaka

Bula Vinaka OB

I got this from a Link as I was a little unsure myself........

The Marist Brothers’ Primary School was established in 1888, at the request of Bishop Julian Vidal, initially to provide education for the children of European settlers. Very quickly, the brothers saw that the need for education was much wider than just this. At that time, there was no provision at all for the children of the indentured Indian settlers, and in 1897 a school for Indians was opened, though children of all races attended, so that it soon became designated as Marist Brothers’ Cosmopolitan School. In 1913, the Felix College was opened, catering for Europeans and Part Europeans. From this school developed the Marist Brothers’ High School, later to be transferred to the present Carew street site. In 1936 St Columba’s Claudius Memorial School was opened. These two schools continued to run as separate institutions until 1963 when they were combined and named the Marist Brothers’ Primary School. However, the school has always been more popularly known as “Marist Suva Street.”

I hope that info may be of little help OB

Remain blessed......

Bula OB Ox, vinaka na veisureti mai.
My memory of the school and its inception
in Suva Street, Toorak, is rather vague.
Correct me if I am wrong..was Marist Suva
Street formerly known as St. Columbus?
In the old days, it was often referred to by
the locals as "Brother School."
