At 24, the headboy Vilimone Baleinayau said he would uphold his duties as required by the school.

Headgirl Raijeli Naikaukaucagi said she was excited about her role.

Vilimone Baleinayau, the newly-inducted headboy of the Fiji Vocational Techni­cal and Training Centre for Per­sons with Disabilities in Suva, said he would uphold the school rules.

“I’m proud for what I have achieved, and this comes with a lot of respon­sibility that shouldn’t be taken lightly,” said the Kiuva native from Tailevu.

Mr Baleinayau, 24, was happy yesterday after being badged with 24 other students to assist running the school of 63 students and seven teachers.

“I’m emotional because my re­sponsibility is to help the teachers and students,” he said.

Being the only son to be badged as head prefect Mr Baleinayau said he would work hard in helping and monitoring students in their school work.

Headgirl Raijeli Naikaukaucagi was equally excited and happy with her new badge.

The 14-year-old from Visama, Tai­levu, said she would discipline the students with guidance from her teachers.

“I am the first in the family to be badged as the headgirl,” she said.
