Pranish Nolton and Asenaca Ranadi Rokorainuku were inducted head boy and head girl of Suva Special School during their prefects’ induction ceremo­ny yesterday.

15 year old Pranish said he was proud to have been given the opportunity to lead the students this year.

Originally from Rabi Island, the teenager aspires to be a policeman.

“I like helping people and as head boy I hope to be able to help our students,” he said.

His mother Tarotuma Tokaman said she was proud of her son’s achievement as Pranish is the first head boy in the family.

Head girl Asenaca Rokorainuku wants to be a nurse.

The 17-year-old who is origi­nally from Matailobau, Naitasiri dedicated her achievement to her mother Ecelina Rokorainuku.

“My mum and all the villagers at home have played a huge part in my success,” she said.

Her mother Ms Rokorainuku said she will support her daughter.

“I have five children and I can confidently say Asenaca is no less than any of them,” she said.

“She always makes me proud.

“She has the capability to lead and I am so happy to see her grow as a person.”

Ms Rokorainuku said life was dif­ficult for the family after her hus­band passed away in 2015.

“It has been difficult on the chil­dren, growing up in a single-par­ent family but we have managed to cope,” Ms Rokorainuku said.
