Jovesa Buruso, Year 13 student of All Saints Secondary School was awarded the Best All Rounder Ca­det during the cadet pass out parade in Labasa yesterday.

The 19-year-old of Sasa in Macuata dedicated his achievement to his moth­er for the sacrifices she has done for him and his siblings.

“I dedicate this award to my mother who believed in me and for never giv­ing up on me and my siblings.

“We are going through a hard time in our life right now but I am blessed that my mother has been encouraging us to not see what our situation is but to believe in what good things God has stored for us,” Jovesa said.

“Being part of the cadet team had boosted my confidence and has taught me about discipline.

“I want to become a pilot later in life because there is no pilot in my village and I believe that through this cadet pass out parade I am disciplined to achieve my dreams.”

Jovesa added: “I advise everyone out there to believe in their dreams and work towards making it a reality.”

His mother, Livia Buruso was emo­tional when describing how hard life is for her and her children for the past four months.

“It’s been four months since me and my husband had separated and it has affected our children a lot. I was sur­prised when his name was called be­cause he didn’t tell me anything,” Ms Buruso said.

“As his mother, I know that he had the passion and the attitude to become whatever he wants to be.

“He is determined to achieve his dream so that he can look after me and his siblings.”

Jovesa is the second eldest of the five siblings.

Children Are Your First Priority: Tui Mac­uata

Parents and guardians present at All Saints Secondary School’s pass out pa­rade in Labasa were reminded of their role towards their children.

Chief Guest for the event, Tui Macu­ata Ratu Wiliame Katonivere reminded the parents to ensure that their chil­dren are their priority.

“I hope that you as parents and guard­ians will always ensure that your chil­dren or child are paramount in your priorities.

“Listen to them, talk to them and ask them. This is an area that I feel we Fi­jians disregard or feel its importance,” Mr Katonivere said.
