All Saints Secondary School’s Best Male cadet Kepu Mairata and Best Female cadet Silo Ta­vatuilagi were happy yesterday after the cadet pass out parade in Labasa.

They both dedicated their achieve­ments to their families.

Kepu Mairata, 18, of Nauluwai in Naitasiri, said he was always aiming to be the Best Male cadet.

“It feels great because I had been plan­ning to be named the Best Male cadet since last year.

“To achieve what I had been aiming for is exciting,” Kepu said.

“I want to become a Police officer and I believe being part of the pass out pa­rade has instilled discipline in me that will be needed for my dream job.”

Silo Tavatuilagi, 17, of Viana village in Macuata, dedicated her achieve­ment to her father.

“I have been taking part in the pass out parade since I was in Year 9 and to be awarded the Best Female cadet feels good.

“My father is a disciplined man be­cause he is a retired soldier and I want to follow his footsteps and this is just the beginning,” Silo said.

“Through the training, the pass out parade has taught me to be proud of the school I attend and who I am. It has boosted my confidence especially in achieving my dreams.”
