Despite changing schools three times, Jone Tuilomaiviti has managed to make a positive impression with the Navoalevu Primary School teachers.

Yesterday he became the headboy of the school, which located in the District of Nadogo, Macuata Province.

His mother’s work forced the family to move from one location to another and for him, this has paid off.

Jone couldn’t stop hugging and thanking his mother, Police Constable Voki Rarawa ,who is based at Wainikoro Police Post.

“Because of my mother’s job I had to change schools from Bethel Primary School to Delainamasi Government School and then in Year Six I came to Navoalevu Primary School,” the 12-year-old said.

“There were days where I struggled lot such as making new friends.

“But my father kept encouraged me,” said the aspiring pilot.

Father, Joshua Tunacika, works as a security officer at Fiji Technical College in Wainikoro outside Labasa Town.

Jone mother is from Lau and his father is from Buca Bay in the Cakaudrove Province.

Police Constable Rarawa said: “He is the first child from my family side to be the headboy.

“Life has been challenging for us as a family but I thank the Lord for binding us together.”

Sugarcane farmer’s daughter, Manshika Prasad. She said she was honoured to be bestowed the responsibility.
