Having to catch a 30-minute bus ride, then a 45-minute walk to school and crossing two creeks to get to school forced Adi Varanisese Sauwaki to make one of the toughest sacrifices.

The newly-inducted Nadogo Central College at Wainikoro headgirl had to leave her family to become a boarder.

“My mother, Rokomere Raqosa used to be very worried about my safety and she and my father who is a pastor of Methodist Church at Nasasa Village decided to put me in the hostel,” 18-year-old said.

“At first I was very upset by their decision.

“But they wanted me to focus in my studies so that I can become a pharmacist.

“God commands us to be obey our parents which is sometimes hard to do,” the eldest of three siblings said.

“Today, I have reaped the fruits of my first obedience. And I dedicate this badge to my parents.”

Headboy Kavitesh Chand, while addressing 78 prefects, said: “If a person’s action inspires others to dream, learn more, do more, then he or she is a good leader.

“To those who are not named as a prefect this year, I urge them to continue to make a difference in school in their own unique way,” the 17-year-old of Boca said.
