Aminiasi Radrodro and Alitiana Voli were as inducted  school leaders of Nadrala Sangam School yesterday.

The school is tagged as one of the model schools in Nadroga/Navosa education district in terms of academic excellence.

Headboy Aminiasi said he was happy and ready to take on this responsibility.

“With the support of my parents and my fellow prefects, I am determined to lead the students.”

Headgirl Alitiana said: “Leading students will be a hard task, but I am determined and will manage my time wisely at school.”

Minister for Education, Heritage and Arts Mahendra Reddy was the chief guest.

“Our Government is emphasising more on education,”Mr Reddy said.

“We will not give you an opportunity to say if that there is an obstacle in education. We have removed all obstacle in obtaining early childhood, primary, secondary and tertiary education.”

He advised parents to talk to their children when they return from school.

“Talk to them when they come home. Ask them what they have done today. Give them support as they are very vulnerable. Children  will become the future leaders.

“We don’t want leaders who will grow up and make decisions based on ethnicity, religion, gender. We want leaders who will rise above variable ethnicity, religion or caste system. That’s our future Fiji,” Mr Reddy said.

The school had a humble beginning 54 years ago when a group of farmers built the school in 1961.

There are 63 students and six teachers at Nadrala Sangam School in Nadroga.
