Leadership role not new to young lad; he was headboy of St Marcellin Primary in 2012.

It’s an honour to fill such a big shoe, says Queen Victoria School headboy Josua Qio.

The newly elected head prefect said he was excited but and at the same time nervous because of the responsibilities that stands before him.

Josua said there were many expec­tations “…so I feel that it is going to be a challenging year.”

But the leadership role is not new territory for the young lad. Josua was also a headboy during his pri­mary years at St Marcellin Primary School back in 2012.

The 18-year-old trusts his fellow student prefects to lend him the support for the entire year.

“With the help of my deputies and the House captains, I strongly be­lieve that this year will be a great year,” he said.

“Managing such a big school and one that is well known won’t be easy, but I leave everything to the Lord and he will guide me and my team through,” he said.

His mother, Mekatoa Qio, was re­ally concerned with the role that the school had entrusted her son with.

“I pray that he would be able to lead the students, and I hope he will lead by example for the rest of the students,” she said.

Mrs Qio said she would want her son to submit a good annual report this year with good achievements.

“Now, every time I’ll hear an un­pleasing report from QVS, my heart will stop,” she said.

Josua’s former primary school teachers and friends from were also at QVS yesterday to witness the cer­emony.

“I am really touched today seeing his teachers and friends from St Marcellin Primary,” said Mrs Qio.

Josua has also set a goal to defend their Deans Trophy rugby title this year. His father is a farmer in Ka­davu.
