Iroga urged all SOSA members to come in their divisional colours which is blue for Kirio, gold for Noabu, white for Masi and green for Tahula.

Selwyn College became a co-educational institution at Najilagu in the Guadalcanal Plains in 1970.
Due to Tropical Cyclone Namu which affected the school in 1986, the premier Anglican Church of Melanesian School was relocated in 1991 to its current location in West Guadalcanal.
