Principal, Parents, Students Happy With New School

Yesterday was a happy day for members of the Christian Mission Fellowship (CMF) International Church community.

Parents, teachers and students got to witness the opening of the CMF Secondary School in Tacirua East, Nasinu.

Pioneer School principal Maikali Benaca said he was privileged to be chosen the first principal.

“I know there were quite a number of people that showed interest for this position and I was caught by surprise when the ministry requested if I could come to help in the enrollment last week,” Mr Benaca said.

He said he would perform to the best of his abilities.

“With my 17 years of experience I do have a lot to offer to the school and I look forward to the increasing number of our students come next year.

“I also look forward to the formalisation of the CMF College that should be catering for more than 700 students by 2017,” he said.

Meanwhile, student Inia Saranuku said he was glad to be one of the pioneer students of the school.

“I’m happy that my name will go down in the history books of this school,” Inia said.

Another student, Lois Ralovo said she had attended the school from Year One and had always looked forward to attending its secondary school.

“It’s exciting to see that the (secondary) school has finally become a reality and I’m happy to be part of it,” Lois said.

Parent Sereima Ranadi of Khalsa Road said she now doesn’t have to go through the hassle of looking for a secondary school for her children.

“This would be very convenient for me because all my children attend CMF Primary School and now I don’t have to look for a secondary schools because they can easily transfer from primary to secondary level,” Ms Ranadi said.

Meanwhile 62-year-old Apikali Cilavisiga, has made up her mind that her now Year Seven granddaughter would be attending the school when the time comes.

“We attend the church and I’d love for my granddaughter to attend the secondary school because it upholds our religious teachings,” she said.
