We must manage our time wisely so that we can reach our full potential, says the best male cadet of Richmond High School on Kadavu Island.

Iliame Qura, 18, said the weeks of cadet training had taught him many things but the most important was time usage.

Mr Qura said: “Time is everything. Setting a goal is important but in order to get there we need to manage our time wisely.”

The well-spoken lad from Yakita Village of the tikina Yawe said he never expected the award because there were other good cadets in the squad.

“I was surprised when my name was called out but then I had to try hard not to smile or scream in happiness because of protocol.

“It was one of the most exhilarating moments of my life,” he said.

Mr Qura, who aspires to be a banker, dedicated the award to his parents, instructors, teachers and platoon (4C).

The best female cadet, Ruci Vitaukitoga, shared similar sentiments saying that the training helped develop physique and character.

“It was discipline that I gained from this training. I know that this will help me be a productive citizen,” the 18-year-old Davuqele, Kadavu, lass said.

“I have learned so much and I am grateful to the school and the Republic of Fiji Military Forces for a great opportunity.”

Ms Vugakoto is a Year 13 student and wants to be a nurse in the near future.
