Acknowledge Goodwill, Not Superiority: A-G To Natabua Student Leaders
Leaders should look for co-operation and goodwill rather than the acknowledgment of their superiority.
This was the strong message delivered to the newly-inducted prefects, form captains, deputies and head prefects of Natabua High School by the Attorney-General Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum yesterday.
In saying this, he implied that there was no use in enforcing principles if the leaders themselves did not practice it.
“That way you won’t have any credibility,” Mr Sayed-Khaiyum told the 159 student leaders in Lautoka.
Followers have the right to expect high standards from their leaders, he said.
“The students who you will be in charge of expect you to follow a particular level of behaviour or standard.”
Mr Sayed-Khaiyum also highlighted humility to the leaders adding that with the position, they needed to be aware of what was happening around them.
Headboy Samuela Vateitei said he was blessed to be heading such a prestigious school.
He said the aim was to set better standards to leadership and student behaviour with the support and co-operation from the student council.
