Changing schools and repeating Year 11 to switch subject combination had no effect on Robert Wilson as he was inducted headboy of St Bede’s College in Savusavu.

The Banaban lad was not surprised about the selection. Robert, who is currently living with his family at Nabalebale in Savusavu, said he was the deputy headboy last year and was confident of getting promoted this year.

“I am a person who thinks strategically, which means doing the right things,” the eldest of five siblings said.

“Strategic thinking is typically leadership and creating vision.

“My vision is to become an aircraft engineer so that I can support my family and myself.

“This is one of the reasons I changed my subject combination from Computer to Physics and changed school from Nabalebale Secondary School to St Bede’s College,” Robert said.

He said it was an honour to be headboy of a prestigious school and thanked the teachers for their support.

His father is a dalo and yaqona farmer at Nabalebale in Savusavu.

Headgirl Maria Weymouth was not surprised also because she was the deputy headgirl last year.

“My ambition is to become a pilot because my aim is to be the mode of inspiration to young girls in Fiji,” the 17-year-old from Natokalau Village in Bua said.

“There are a few girls who choose to be a pilot for many reasons and I want to be an inspiration to them.”

Maria is the only child of a musician at Jean-Michel Cousteau Resort in Savusavu.

58 students were inducted as prefects.
