Although Laisiasa Tuibeqa is aware that entering the Aviation school would cost him a lot of money which his par­ents cannot afford, he is still deter­mined to achieve his dream.

The newly inducted headboy of South Taveuni Primary School on Taveuni Island said, he managed to achieve his dream of becoming the headboy. He could also be a pilot one day, he added.

“It is not about working hard but trusting the good Lord to give you hope and a future,” Laisiasa said.

“If you are planning to do some­thing good for yourself and others surely God will make a way,” the 14-year-old of Delaivuna Settle­ment said.

“I want to become a pilot so that I can help my parents. We have a small yaqona and dalo farm and my parents work hard to support me and my siblings.”

“I believe that nothing starts in life until you start dreaming,” the eldest of four siblings said

“God gave us the ability to dream, to create and to imagine; dreaming is an act of faith.

Now with my new role as a head­boy I will organise my work, stud­ies and family life.

This headboy badge is a blessing from God and I will do my best to be a good steward.”

Meanwhile, the newly inducted headgirl Lavenia Senikau whose parents also own and work in their yaqona and dalo farm for a living said she was happy to be chosen as the headgirl.

“I am the seventh youngest of 12 siblings and my dream was to be­come a teacher like my eldest sister but she said to choose another pro­fession,” the 12-year-old of Naba­lina Settlement on Taveuni Island said.

“So I have decided to become a nurse and my sister told me she will financially support my career.

“My parents are not rich.

“But I have the right attitude and a heart to serve others.

“Maybe this is the reason why I was selected by teachers as the headgirl.

The school has a roll of 468 stu­dents from Year One to Eight, 18 teachers and 18 prefects.
