The first teaching Marist Brothers came to Fiji in 1888. Their task was to teach the children of European settlers. Yet, by the turn of the century, they had opened two schools for indigenous  Fijians and one for the Indian population in Suva, who had until then no opportunity available to them for education. Since 1888 the brothers have taught in Suva, Cawaci, Naililili, Wairiki, Napuka and Savarekareka.

The Marist Brothers currently have five educational institutions in Suva:

Marist Brothers High School - Flagstaff

Marist Brothers Primary School - Suva

St. Marcellin Primary School - Vatuwaqa

Champagnat Institute - a special needs vocational school at Vatuwaqa

Marcellin's Angels - a kindergarten at Vatuwaqa.

These schools come under the auspices of the Fiji Marist Brothers Trust Board and are strengthened by a strong core of dedicated Champagnat Marist men and women.

 

The District Noviciate is also located in Fiji at Lomeri.  This is about one hours drive from Suva on the road to Nadi.
