Cadets formation read initials to honour chief guest

Republic of Fiji Military Forces Chief of Staff Colonel Litea Seruiratu has commended the students, teachers and parents for a magnificent 21st passing-out parade after reviewing it at the Xavier College school ground.

“It is with great pleasure that I am able to stand before you today, to review this spectacular parade which all of us have witnessed. This is a very special day for the school community especially the cadets, as it is the 21st passing-out parade for the school,” Colonel Seruiratu said.

Colonel Seruiratu was the chief guest at the passing-out parade at the school in Ba last Friday. She said cadetships were aimed at introducing the principles of discipline, courage, obedience, determination and teamwork.

“It reinforces culture, love, selflessness, sharing and working together in achieving a common goal. It encourages valuable personal attributes, help to build skills and using military themes based upon the culture and ethos of the military to foster confidence, self-reliance, initiative, loyalty and a sense of service to others,” she said.

She said cadet training improved young people’s lives and prepared them for the challenges and responsibilities of employment and adult life. The significant aspect of the parade was it brought the audience together to cheer with delight and amazement as the cadets did a formation which read BULA MD LVS. It was announced to the audience that it stood for “Bula Vinaka Madam Colonel Litea Vulakoro Seruiratu”. The   formation was created following the march past.

The parade concluded with a march past by the Year 13 students graduating from Xavier College Cadet Corps, after successfully completing their three years of basic cadet training.

The parade was supported by St Thomas High School Brass Band of Lautoka.
