Waiqele Secondary School newly inducted prefects were advised yesterday by chief guest Major Penisio Mamau to be loyal, dedicated and selfless at the induction assembly at the school.

“The process of selecting prefects is not an easy one,” Major Mamau said.

“A prefect is not being about the biggest boy of girl in the class, it is not about being smart or clever, not about being the oldest in the class.

“Prefects should be loyal, committed, dedicated, selfless and morally strong.”

Major Mamau said prefects should be the first one into the school every morning and the last to leave the classroom every afternoon.

“The satisfaction of being prefect lies in the overall achievement of the school because you will always know that with your contribution the school mission will be achieved,” he said.

School principal Ashok Ram said they had 23 prefects including four as bus prefects for the Nabekavu, Coqoru, Labasa Town and Nakama routes.

Mr Ram said he was very thankful to Parmod Enterprises Limited for providing a special bus in the morning and afternoon for students from Nakama Village.

“Since 2015 we have implemented many strategies which have helped us see good pass rates, good attendance and increase in student roll,” Mr Ram said.

“The student roll now from Year Nine to 13 is 141 and four of our students have secured topper scheme.”
