Discipline within homes has deteriorated over the years while moral turpitude has crept into some religious beliefs.

While briefing cadets of St Thomas High School in their Pass Out Parade in Lautoka, District Secretary Jeremaia Waqanisau said the fabric of society had changed over the years.

“Social media has become part of everyone as cybercrime has taken some foothold in some financial markets.”

“More than ever, Fiji needs leaders, leaders with the right attitude, teamwork and integrity.”

“As leaders you must be respectful. Respect is earned and is earned by leaders when they learn to respect the uniqueness, the strengths, weaknesses and potential of team members.”

“What has been achieved today is a reflection of your commitment in making things right, adjusting well to the rhythm of the drums and most of all the balanced team work that makes the cadet parade unforgettable, cherished and treasured to you, as cadets today.”

“The rigorous training that you’ve had to endure was not only about today, it was more about your future and the future of our country.

“It was about preparing you to become leaders of tomorrow.”

“Cadet training therefore is not so much about timing and precision, more so it is about instilling values and nurturing leadership.”
