Thousands of Liahona-Saineha ex- students came as far as Washington and Oregon to celebrate the US chapters’ re-union 2014 on July 9 – 14 in Honolu, Hawaii.

The celebration was specially attended by Tongan nobility with Prince Ata chaired the six days event. Lord Fakafanua, Speaker of the Tongan Parliament and Lord Fulivai, Governor of Vava’u also attended.

MP Semisi Sika who is also the president of the Liahona-Saineha Alumni said former students celebrate the reunion every year in their respective countries. In every three years followed they have to celebrate it in Tonga.

Next year the alumni’s global community will reunite in the kingdom in an event that will coincide the coronation of His Majesty King Tupou VI in July 2015.

The association has an investment of TP$3million to help pay for children whose parents could not afford to pay for their school fees.

Sometimes when a business is growing, it needs a little help.

Right now Kaniva News provides a free, politically independent, bilingual news service for readers around the world that is absolutely unique. We are the largest New Zealand-based Tongan news service, and our stories reach Tongans  wherever they are round the world. But as we grow, there are increased demands on Kaniva News for translation into Tongan on our social media accounts and for the costs associated with expansion. We believe it is important for Tongans to have their own voice and for Tongans to preserve their language, customs and heritage. That is something to which we are strongly committed. That’s why we are asking you to consider sponsoring our work and helping to preserve a uniquely Tongan point of view for our readers and listeners.
