On 1st March 1960 a group of dedicated elders from Tavua took the bold step by establishing Tavua High School. In 1961, the school was renamed as Tavua College. From its humble beginning from a wooden structure containing a classroom, a library, an office and about 21 students, the College has never looked back in terms of overall upgrading.

Being the first and only high school for many years, it has touched the lives of many residents and they have reciprocated wholeheartedly by their continuous support.
