Poama Mitchell is fol­lowing in his mother’s footsteps as a head pre­fect of Bucalevu Secondary School on Taveuni Island.

And the 18-year-old Qamea islander is proud to be the head boy.

Poama said he was confident to be getting the position be­cause his mother was once the head girl of the school and prepared him well.

“I would like to thank the al­mighty God, parents, friends and teachers for their sup­port,” Poama said.

“This is the biggest achieve­ment of my life and my aim is to be the best overall leader in the school.”

Aspiring to become a civil engineer, he said although he came from a poor family back­ground, there was nothing to stop him achieving his goal.

“If one has confidence in oneself, he or she can achieve anything in life,” Poama said.

Meanwhile, the newly-in­ducted head girl, Lynett Stolz, 17, of Matei, Taveuni Island, said she was shocked to be given the nod by teachers.

“When I entered Year 13 in 2019 my aim was to study hard because I want to get a schol­arship to pursue an aircraft engineering course,” Lynett said.

“I didn’t realise that God will be too kind to grant my deep­est desire to be the head girl.

“I thank everyone who sup­ported me, especially my par­ents.

“Being the head girl will mean being responsible and also accountable for every ac­tion I do.”
