International School Nadi has appointed its new headboy and headgirl with Samuel Knight and Jessica Browne to lead the student council this year.

The school hosted their prefects’ induction yesterday with parents participating in the event.

Samuel, who is originally from Australia and has lived in Fiji for the last five years, said all of the head prefects at ISN had been trying to work to improve the school lives of everyone.

“Although these badges do look pretty cool, they don’t mean anything without action. We can all agree that with leadership comes responsibility,” he said.

“We’re improving the Student Representative Council to be more effective at solving issues brought up by the students, implementing sports competitions in the secondary, working with the school to help look at new lunch options, looking at new sports uniform and working to improve responsible social media usage.

“We are trying to organise, our most important role is communicating with everyone.

“The door to the diploma classroom is always open, metaphorically as otherwise Ms Bethan would yell at me for letting the cold air out.

“If anyone in the school has any issues or ideas, feel free to find any of the head students and we will try our best to help. For me, that’s what being a leader all is about.”

Samuel wishes to undertake an Engineering career while Jessica plans to undertake Psychology.

Principal Don Payne said the best learners make the best leaders.

He said: “These young people today, whether it is through an election process, or through volunteering have put their hand up and said ‘I want to be part of making ISN a better place for everyone.’

“Make no bones about it, leadership can be a lonely, difficult path to chose and not everyone is well equipped or ready for leadership when the opportunity comes along.” Edited by Jonathan Bryce
