Being a prefect is a great responsibility and requires a lot of commitment.”

These were the words of the Ministry of Youth and Sports Senior Co-ordinator North Mere Ratukonadi during the prefect induction ceremony at Labasa School for Special Education yesterday.

15 prefects were badged and Ms Ratukonadi said those that have been badged should take it as a great privilege and with a deep sense of pride.

“A badge is not to be worn with arrogance: not to show off and it is not to indulge in bullying tactics to show power, but in the tradition of your founder, to show great leadership,” Ms Ratukonadi said.

“Believe in human rights for all: stand up for what is right; sometimes standing alone, not bowing to peer pressure. Leadership demands great responsibility and accountability.”

Newly inducted headboy Krishan Vishal Deo said he was happy to be named the headboy of the school.

“I am the first headboy in the family and I am ready for my responsibilities. My father does not work and my mother is a house girl. This is the beginning of what I will become in the future,” Krishan said.

“I want to become a mechanic so that I can help my mum and lift all her burdens. My parents are happy with my achievement.”

Headgirl Kenesi Moce of Sawani Village in Bua said she was confident about her selection as headgirl.

“My father died when I was young and my mother has been there for my siblings and me. I want to become a doctor so that I can look after my mother who has sacrificed a lot,” Kenesi said.

“I am looking forward to leading the students of the school with the help of the headboy and the prefects.”

The school has a roll of 72 students.
