‘My family expects a lot more from me than what they have done’

 

Prithvi Narayan yesterday followed in his father’s footsteps after he was inducted the headboy of Baulevu High School at the school in Kasavu, Tailevu.

Prithvi, 17, follows in a long lineage of school leaders, with his father was the head boy, his sister was the head girl, his brother was a senior prefect and he has stepped up to the mark as the new headboy of the school.

As the newly inducted headboy, Prithvi was standing proud among the 24 other senior prefects during the school’s prefect induction ceremony.

“My role model is my father while my mother is my biggest support and my sister is my inspiration for me,” Prithvi said.

“My father was one of the former headboys of this school back in the 1990s while my brother was a senior prefect and sister was a former headgirl of Baulevu High School.

“I am the youngest of three siblings and like how my siblings have set great examples, my family expects a lot more from me than what they have done.”

He said the discipline of the school at all times would be one of his goals.

“As the headboy, for the school I would like to work on the discipline,” he said.

“I believe that school’s discipline should be maintained at all times whether you are a student, teacher or management of the school.”

Headgirl, 17-year-old Archana Goundar, said her inspiration was the school’s former headgirl, Payal Narayan, who had the ability to speak well.

“I believe speaking is one of the major qualities that all heads of the school should know and have,” Archana said.

“It provides us with the platform to advocate on things that involves both the students and teachers.

“Another quality we as leaders need to have is the ability to engage with the students and build trust.

“We are appointed to look at every student as our friend and make sure we play justice to all.”
