St Thomas High School student Apenisa Ratulevu was beaming from ear to ear after he displayed superb skills as Parade Commander at the Lautoka school’s passing-out parade on Friday.

The only child in his family Apenisa’s dedication to his position earned him the Baton of Honour from the Minister for Youth and Sport, Laisenia Tuitubou.

On hand to witness the event was his proud mother, Sokoveti Nasovi.

The Naisisili villager from Nacula in Yasawa said the cadet programme had instilled in him a lot discipline and taught him a lot about obedience.

His mother, who comes from Namena in Tailevu, said that being the only child in the family, Apenisa was always disciplined, even before the cadet programme,

She said the Year 13 student was the pride of the family and wished his father, who works for the Lautoka City Council, was there to witness the feat.

Apenisa’s dad, Mosese Nasovi, was at work and could not attend.

Apenisa said he wanted to join the Republic of Fiji Military Forces (RFMF).

“I will try my best to become an army officer with the Fiji Military Forces as I have come to admire the discipline it teaches you.

“This is my last year at St Thomas and I will pursue this dream of becoming an army officer when I finish school,” he said.

Ratulevu said he would cherish his memories at St Thomas especially of being awarded the Baton of Honour.
