Headgirl of Yat Sen Primary School Karen Yam expressed how privileged she felt to lead the school.

36 prefects including the headboy, headgirl and their deputies were inducted yesterday at the Yat Sen school hall in Flagstaff, Suva.

“I am happy and excited as I got the opportunity to become the headgirl and learn new things such as assisting students and teachers which can be a challenge but I will do my level best to uphold my responsibilities,” Karen said.

Headboy Jason Chow feels it will be a challenge to uphold his duty and at the same time concentrate on his school work.

“I will have to work hard as a headboy to keep up with my school work academically as I also have responsibilities to uphold with my duties and looking after the students,” Jason said.

‘Be a role model, lead by example’ was the message given by the chief guest Reverend Poate Uculoa Mata for the students.

Reverend Mata stressed to the young leaders the importance of the opportunity given to them. He advised them to take it as a stepping stone onto something greater for their future; to start small as prefects but to think big as leaders.

He highlighted five tips of leadership to the young leaders which was firstly to be a person of your word, secondly their lives should impact and influence others, thirdly to be loving and caring to everyone always, fourthly to have faith in God and yourself and lastly to live a holy, pure and clean life.
