It was an exciting moment for Kavekini Rasaqa when he was inducted as the headboy of St Joseph the Worker Primary School on Friday.

The Year 8 student could not hold back tears as his aunt, who brought him up, spoke about him.

“He has always been a disciplined kid growing up and today proves it as he takes on this new responsibility,” Saumi Tupou said.

Ms Tupua said she and her husband raised him since he was a baby.

“I just want to thank my aunt and my grandmother for raising me,” an emotional Kavekini said.

He said he would do his best to be a leader in school. He also aspires to become a lawyer in future.

Sabina Maramaniqio, the aunt of the school’s newly badged headgirl, Veronika Verenaisi, was also a very proud woman on Friday.

“I’ve always told her to work hard so she can be something in life and today I’m just proud of her,” an emotional Ms Maramaniqio said.

Ms Maramaniqio said she always knew her niece had potential since she was a child.

The headgirl said she aimed to do her best in her new role. She aspires to become a doctor.

Veronika  attributes her achievement to her grandmother and aunt.

Parents and guardians turned up in numbers for the prefects’ induction at the school.

The school has a roll of 1026 from Year 1-8. 28 prefects including the head prefects were inducted.
