Young Ashlyn Kumar was all smiles yesterday after she was badged as headgirl of Dilkusha Girls (Primary) School yesterday.
“I am very happy today and I would like to thank my teachers and my parents for their support,” Ashlyn said.
“I will do my best to lead the school and make the school and my teachers proud.
“As for the prefects chosen today, we are the future leaders of the nation so we must work hard and be good role models for other students to follow.”
Chief guest Permanent Secretary for Education Dr Brij Lal said primary school was the foundation for producing the future leaders of the nation.
“As young leaders of the nation, you prefects must be disciplined in order to instill discipline onto other students,” Dr Lal said.
“Today you are chosen because you have the qualities to lead and for those that are not chosen learn to be good followers as good leaders come from the crowd.
“You need to have a positive attitude towards everything and everyone and continue to encourage other students.”
Dr Lal also urged the prefects to respect everyone and to refrain from gossips.
He also spoke about free education and the importance of students attending schools daily.
“With the government making education free, it is the parents and the teacher’s duty to ensure that students attend school daily.”
Twenty-seven prefects were inducted yesterday. The two deputies are Eileen Korovakaturga and Senibiaukula Fung.
