As the old proverb says it takes a village to raise a child

This rings true for Cicia High school.

Totoka Cicia: Island of Excellence documentary was released yesterday at the United States Embassy in Tamavua, Suva.

The documentary is about the school’s academic success on the island. It captures perspectives from the local community on the academic achievements of the school and highlights the reasons behind these achievements.

The entire community, parents, teachers, coaches, and church leaders in Cicia played a role in making their school a success.

It was produced by the Public Affairs Office of the Embassy in collaboration with its Alumni Association.

US Ambassador to Fiji Judith Ceftkin said it took a leader, the former school principal, Isikeli Karikaritu, to co-ordinate their efforts.

“To inspire the students, the teachers and parents and I think it was a great lesson on leadership that his students and staff will remember for years to come,” Ms Cefkin said.

“As a result, this high school on a remote island against all odds achieved a 100 per cent passing rate in the Fiji School Leaving Certificate Exams in 2014.

“And managed to maintain a 100 per cent passing rate in the Fiji Junior Certificate exams from 2007-2010.”

Mr Karikaritu said to successfullly execute a plan for positive development in a society one must first believe in one’s own self.

The school was established in 2005 with only two streams.

The former school principal is from Mabula Village on Cicia Island where the high school is located.
