Kolaia Bucalevu, 14, aims to join the Royal Fiji Military Forces (RFMF) to become a soldier after completing his secondary school education.

He is the headboy of Magodro District School. He won the Baton of Honour during the school’s cadet passing-out parade last Friday.

Prime Minister Voreqe Bainimarama was the chief guest.

“I always admire combat where a gun is being used, so I want to join the army after school,” Bucalevu said.

“There is always something special about discipline which is in the RFMF, so there is where my heart lies. There are challenge in the risk of losing life, but that is the passion for peacekeeping as well.”

The Year Eight student will join Natabua High school next year just like his three elder siblings.

His father Mitieli Cama, a farmer, praised his son.

“It is proud to witness Kolaia doing his job well today and to be witnessed by his friends, teachers, villagers, and the Prime Minister himself,” Mr Cama said.

Mr Bainimarama commended the students on their parade.

He said there was a need for disciplined lives and people who were loyal to their leaders.

“You look absolutely magnificent standing there so tall and proud and I want to commend you on your turnout,” Mr Bainimarama said.

“These parades teach you discipline and the qualities of bearing and attention to detail that will help you immensely when you grow older.”
