After proudly leading the school during the year, headgirl Salote Veisamasama was in tears after receiving the iTaukei Prize for Leadership during Adi Cakobau School’s prizegiving at the school hall yesterday.

The 18-year-old school’s head girl said: “As a final year student, I now leave as a mature and life-long learner; responsible for my own progress and independent in my thoughts and perspectives.”

Salote said she learned all this in the corridors of Adi Cakobau School where she led a total of 680 students. She is originally from Namama, Macuata in Vanua Levu and is the second-youngest of five siblings.

“I have had many family members who received their education here at ACS and I am one of them who carry the family tradition,” she said.

“This is a very sad day for me as I farewell the school that moulded me to become a leader and a little bit different from the fresh-faced third-former who came in five years ago; frightened and seeking to please everyone.

“Now I leave as a lady with strength and a sense of independence, coupled with great responsibility,” she said.

Salote said she was thankful to be part of the school’s wonderful memories and its victories.

“I will forever cherish my years spent at Adi Cakobau School and now look forward to furthering my studies so I can pursue my career as a public relations officer.”
