Close relationships between  the student body and school management led to 100 per cent pass rate in the Fiji Year 13 Certificate Examination for Valebasoga Secondary School last year.

School principal Ahmed Mohd Tauwab received two award from the first ever Minister’s Excellence Awards on behalf of the school .

“We were able to receive the 100 per cent pass rate through the assistance of the students and parents,” he said.

“We had 10 students in Form Seven (Year 13) and the student and teacher ratio was less.

“More interactions between the student and teacher was there and that made all the students able to pass.

“I managed to visit all the parents with the help of the vice principal.

He said he was able to sit with the parents to talk to them in making a difference about their children’s education progress.”

There are 101 students registered at the school this year.

“This award is for the teachers, management board, parents and students, especially the Year 13,” he said.

The school is located 5km from Labasa Town.

“The majority of the bright students go to Labasa College or Sangam.”

He said one of the reasons for this was because the school burned down in 2008.

“From that time, most of the students had to go. Thankfully an initiative came from the Prime Minister and Minister of Education to fund the reconstruction of the school that was worth $160,000,” he said.

When he joined the school as a principal in 2015, the students were able to be retained with the assistance of the teachers.

“In order to maintain this level of excellence, we will step up ahead from what we did last year,” he said.

He said the school management board has constructed a plan to maintain the level of excellence in their education.
