Rosie Devi believes that a great leader is one that is always ready to help others when the need arises.

The Year 13 student was badged as headgirl of Nawai Secondary School in Nadi this week. Twenty-four other prefects were also bagded, with Lauresh Mudaliar taking on the role of headboy.

“For me being a leader is to help others and leading the students forward,” the 18-year-old said.

“But I also believe it will be done only by teamwork and I know I have the full support of the assistant leaders and prefects for it to work.”

Ms Devi, whose mother is an amputee said: “My mother is her big motivator as I take on this challenging role, as she inspires me to work hard and always be truthful in whatever task I am assigned.

“My parents were overwhelmed and I have to thank them and especially the teachers for having confidence in me.”

Lauresh, 17, echoed similar sentiments and hoped that this year would be a successful and prosperous year.

Assistant Registrar of the University of Fiji, Sanjai Singh, who officiated at the prefects induction said: “Prefects induction ceremonies are one of the memorable events of every new academic year.

“This makes every child discover the leadership in him or in her.

“Such trust should never be abused, instead it should be channelled to engage, motivate and inspire those you are responsible for; to be the best they can be academically as well as at a personal level.

“When this ceremony takes place in a school or a college, the vested candidates feel a sense of pride in them that they are a leader in making for the future.

“I wish you all well in your new roles and trust that you will carry out your responsibilities throughout the year with due diligence, firmness and compassion when the occasion calls for it.”
