Gospel High School chief guest Republic of Fiji Military Forces (RFMF) chief-of-staff Colonel Litea Seruiratu yesterday commended the 483 cadets who took part in the passing-out-parade at the school grounds.

“As cadets standing here today, they are leaders in their own rights and they might therefore continue to resemble the acquired leadership qualities in life,” Colonel Seruiratu said.

“I would like to thank the young men and women on parade today for a fine display of marching and foot drills.

“The general turnout today is immaculate and the standard portrayed is second to none. I am confident to say that we are equally impressed with their dedication and most obvious is their delight in the achievement today.”

Colonel Seruiratu said in time cadets would face the pressures and demands that would come with the task before them. Eight students with hearing and speaking disabilities were included in the parade.

“It also comes at a time in which the core values, cultures, traditions, social, economic, and religious structure are being challenged,” she said.

“It is something that we should face up to and rise to the challenges, so that we can be confident that our future generations are best prepared to deal with whatever lied ahead of them.”

The school awarded their four best cadets yesterday and the Baton of Honour was taken out by Iliesa Moceituba of St John House.

Students were divided into the four houses of St Mathew – green house, St Mark – blue house, St Luke – red house, and St John – yellow house.

Colonel Seruiratu thanked the principal and teachers of Gospel High School as well as parents of the students who encouraged their students to take part in the passing-out parade.
