Despite separation and hardships for 14 weeks, former nurse, Ilisoni Rabeti, 28, from Vaturova, Cakaudrove, was a recipient of the Baton of Honour during the passing-out parade on Friday.

He received his award from Prime Minister Voreqe Bainimarama at the Naboro Corrections Complex.

The eldest in a family of five and married with a daughter, Mr Rabeti, was a nurse for six years at the Wainimala District health centre before he joined the Corrections Service early this year.

“I am honoured and very happy. The major obstacle that I faced during the 14 weeks of training was the separation from my family. It was really hard to be away from them,” he said.

“My family kept me going. I was a nurse for six years and then I resigned to join the correctional services because I feel that I should try something out of the ordinary that was to look after inmates,” he said.
