Abstract

Betikama Adventist College is a day school and boarding college located on the outskirts of the city of Honiara, on the island of Guadalcanal, Solomon Islands. Early development of the school at Betikama began in 1947, soon after the Second World War, under the leadership of Lyndon and Grace Thrift. Betikama students have represented the Solomon Islands many times over the years at Pacific cultural events and sporting events and with their musical and creative skills. The graduates are highly regarded as employees in the local area.
