Drasa Avenue School Year Eight students Kulaia Rawaqa and Pranav Datt were appointed as the 2019 head girl and head boy for the school.

Rawaqa, who is the daughter of former national 7s and 15s forward Ifereimi Rawaqa, while delivering her speech at the school’s prefects induction yesterday said she would give her best to work hard in leading the school.

“I would like to thank the head teacher, Shelvin Prasad, and teachers for the opportunity to be the head girl and I will try my hardest to serve and lead by example,” she said.

“For us, who are sitting our external examinations, let us do our utmost best to lift the name and reputation of our beloved school.”

Her mother, Lilieta Rawaqa, said together with Mr Rawaqa, this was a proud moment for them to witness an achievement of hard work paid off after almost completing eight years at Drasa Avenue School.

“One of the aspects that she will learn from this is being a true role model to the other students,” Mrs Rawaqa said.

“I hope she will be able to take this further into secondary and tertiary life to be a good leader.

“I hope she will work hard as she possibly can to achieve her dreams.”

Head Boy

Pranil Datt, who is the father of head boy Pranav Datt, said he hoped his son would do his best in leading the school with his new appointment.

“One thing we have taught him is to respect other people and with that you will earn respect from others,” he said.

“I hope he balances his school work with his duty now as head boy.”

The chief guest, director primary education Hem Chand, said the success of students was from the dedication and sacrifice of their parents and teachers of the school.

“Last year’s result was excellent and the students who are in high school now produced excellent results, in most of the subjects the students scored 100 out of 100,” he said.

“Full credit goes to the parents, teachers, management, head teacher, assistant head teacher and all those who are fully supporting the school.

“Please continue to support the school and I’m sure the results this year will be very good.”

He urged the newly-appointed heads and school prefects to be good role models and maintain discipline at all times.

Meanwhile, the school’s deputy head boy is Krish Lal while the deputy head girl is Vani Moreyawa.
