St Joseph’s Year 13 Remembered

It was a quiet and dignified gathering yesterday at Suva’s St Joseph’s Secondary School as Year 13 students were farewelled by their parents.

Tears were shed as the girls shared their experiences of their secondary school years.
Masilini Leweilaba, 19, said the farewell was a sad moment for them because most of them had spent many years together.

“It’s not easy leaving. This school has taught us to be independent and be able to speak out for ourselves and make us strong young women as we go out,” she said.

The school’s 100 metres gold medallist, Sisilia Seavula, said although it was heartbreaking to leave she was reassured that the school nurtured her well.

“When we step out into reality I am confident to face anything that comes my way,” Miss Seavula said.

“I also miss the relationship and friendship bond we have developed with the girls through our five years together and I don’t know if I can find it anywhere else.”

Meanwhile, Year 13 parent, Matthew Chand, said the parents’ hosting their daughters to a lunch was to celebrate the bonding the girls and parents developed over the years at the school.

Mr Chand commended the school for nurturing their daughters to become strong young women.
