Inoke Droya aims to be a lawyer in the future.

The Year 13, Nasinu Secondary School student was badged the headboy, during the prefect induction ceremony among 85 other prefects in Nasinu yesterday.

The 18-year-old of Nasava village in Naitasiri, has been given the lead role twice in a row.

He was one of the hundreds of students who started off as pioneers when Year 9 was introduced at Nasinu Seconday School.

Inoke said he dreamed of becoming a lawyer in the future so he could make changes in his village.

“Since I hail from the interior of Naitasiri and I know how things have been working out there, I want to finish my education on a high note to help the children there.

“I have witnessed many children drop out of school after Year 8 and some in high school.

“I want to be an example to them of pushing themselves beyond their limits to study and get better education for themselves.

“It is not only about themselves but also the country and its future,” Inoke said.

He said as a lawyer, he would like to support and provide help for his village so the drop outs were eliminated.

“As a young boy, I want to improve on the school structure in the village and make sure that no one is left behind due to financial difficulties or any other problem faced in the villages.

“I will need support from the head girl to focus on my goals as well as carrying out my expected duties as a leader.

“Since this is going to be my last year and also the second year of leadership as a head boy, I will focus on uplifting the standard of the school.

“Especially the discipline and the academic result as the results last year were not as pleasing but I want to work with the students to improve on the results this year,” Inoke said.

Head girl of the school, Adi Laisa Cabenalevu, 18, of Naloto village in Verata, Tailevu said she would support the headboy’s decision of uplifting the standard of the school.

“The headboy has experience as a leader and I am sure he has made the right decisions to improve on the school’s standard, results and discipline.

“In addition to that, I would like to re-introduce the discipline of girls how it used to be back in the days.

“We have to make sure that what we do to make our school better, we have to focus on our academic results as well,” Adi Laisa.
