“Prefects are the front-liners- who will be observed and criticised so they have to win the allegiance of all students.”
The divisional education officer – Western, Lorima Voravora, said this at Swami Vivekananda College, Nadi, at its prefects’ induction ceremony last Friday.
Mr Voravora said he was honoured to be there as the school has been a prestigious institution in the past five decades.
He congratulated the school for its 2013 Fiji Seventh Form Examination outstanding performance in which the college had the highest per cent pass rate in the Western Division.
The school had also attained the highest mark in the Fiji School Leaving Certificate Examination with 379 out of 400 marks.
“You are global prefects because the college is exposed to ICT so the prefects should act locally and think globally.
“SVC students are one of the most privileged students in the region as they have an auditorium, advanced ICT facilities, staff and students exchange with Korea and are the champions of Peace Education,” said Mr Voravora.
He further reminded the chosen prefects of their responsibilities as representatives of students and as mediums of communication between the students and the school’s administration.
The school inducted 60 senior prefects and 10 head prefects who would be led by headboy, Praney Nand and headgirl, Keleni Domonanumi.
It was a proud moment for both of them when their names were announced as the school’s head prefects.
Both thanked fellow students, teachers and their parents for bestowing their trust in them.
