Tonga’s Tailulu College commemorates golden jubilee

Tailulu College in Nuku’alofa has celebrated a milestone in the form of its 50th anniversary at the home of “Monu Kae Afe.”

Their Majesties King Tupou VI and Queen Nanasipau’u Tuku’aho were the guests of honour at the celebrations.

Ex-scholars, current students and teachers joined invited guests on 24 May for the anniversary.

King Tupou named a new school hall ‘Fale Masiva’ in remembrance of the 50t h birthday.

In his address, he noted the orange colour of the school uniform and compared it to gold saying it was hard and unbreakable.

Guests were treated to a feast prepared by Siasi ‘o Tonga Tau’ataina and celebrations went well into the day.

Tailulu College was established on 2 February 1967 with more than 400 students.

There are currently more than 600 students studying at Tailulu College.

Prior to the establishment of the college, the church hosted a primary and  school called the Ako Tonga in Nuku’alofa and the outer Islands.
