Surrounded by the cheers and applause, Mosese Seru marched forward to receive his award during the All Saints Secondary School cadet passing-out parade on Friday.

Mr Seru, who was named the Best All Rounder, said he was overjoyed and could not have dreamed of a better parting gift from a secondary school.

“I enrolled in All Saints because I knew they were one of the very few schools in the North that included cadets as a part of their academic programme,” the 18-year-old said.

“I started to lose hope as they did not offer this for the past two years, but the decision to revive it this year is greatly appreciated.”

The Nanukuloa, Gau Island, native said the training had equipped him with worthwhile life lessons he believed would steer him in the right direction.

“These cadets have four aims of drill and the first is to be alert, confident, teamwork and be proud of your school. These aims sum up discipline,” Mr Seru said.

Emotions were high as parents and friends watched and cheered in support of students who paraded at the school.

“The team did splendidly well and I have to say that the parade during the trainings were not as perfect as today’s,” Mr Seru said.
