Eighteen-year-old Sinate Talei was all smiles after she was presented the Baton of Honour award.
The Natabua High School Year 13 student was presented the award during their passing-out parade at the school ground in Lautoka, yesterday. Also being the first deputy headgirl as Officer in Command, Miss Talei was excited about her accomplishment.
“Today was a really good experience, especially being a female leading the parade. For the past few years it would usually be the male that would lead the parade,” she said.
“So it has been a good opportunity leading the parade and it will be a memorable occasion for me.
“I am really thankful to the good Lord for giving me the strength to endure the hot sun, despite seeing some of my collegues moving and shaking I was not discouraged.”
Her mother, Amelia Rugua, was emotional while describing her daughter’s achievement.
“This being Sinate’s last year we are so proud of her and we thank God for all that she has achieved,” Ms Rugua said.
“Even though Sinate’s dad was not able to make it on time, she still managed to do her best in the parade.”
The Year 13 student who hails from Gau, Lomaiviti, looks forward to further her studies overseas in medicine.
“I have received a scholarship offer from USA, but I will have to see since I want to study in Japan or China,” she said.
