The newly-appointed headboy and headgirl of Draiba Primary School are calling on the co-operation of their fellow prefects and colleagues.

Headgirl Kesaia Waqavakatoga says she expects her fellow prefects and deputies to perform their duties.

“I’m hoping that we will all work together without being reminded to do things over and over again,” Kesaia said.

Headboy Eparama Duikete said he was ready to perform his duty to lead his colleagues.

“At the same time I will need the help and co-operation of other students,” the 13 -year-old said.

“I did not expect to be chosen but I’ll make sure I carry out my duties with faith and responsibility,”he said.

Meanwhile, assistant headteacher Sekove Daveta commended the parents’ support during the prefects’ induction.

He said prefects were leaders who should set examples for others.

“At all times, you must assist teachers when they are in need; you must also exercise full control of the class when they are not around,”Mr Sekove said.

He said this was a platform for developing their leadership skills for they may one day be sitting and ruling our country.

“Our current prime minister and president were ex-scholars of the then Draiba Fijian School,’ he said.

Out of 400 students, 36 prefects were chosen to lead the school at their induction ceremony yesterday.
