Maria Solikibau believes that nurturing her children with love is slowly paying dividends.

On Monday, the overjoyed mother was in tears as she witnessed her son, Maika Solikibau, badged head boy of Xavier College in Ba.

Mrs Solikibau told the Fiji Sun being at home and attending to the needs of her husband, Samuela Solikibau and their five children meant she had a bigger role to play.

“My priority is my children and I am a proud mother to see that my son is the head boy of Xavier College,” she said.

“It is the love that I have for my kids which starts from home than to their academic performance.

“I always motivate them and urge them to believe in themselves.”

Maika said his parent’s teachings brought him to where he was today.

“I was only allowed to play rugby last year, they have been strict with my academic work so I can score good marks and succeed,” he said

“My parents are supportive of my academic work and that is why I am blessed to be where I am today.”

Also sharing a moment of happiness was head girl Aidah Zaahirah, who highlighted that it was her childhood dream to enrol at Xavier College and become the head girl.

“It has always been a dream of mine to become head girl of this college since I was in primary school,” she said.

“I plan to enforce the student code of conduct which has been brought into policy this year and make sure students abide by those rules and not engage in unacceptable activities in school.”

There are 20 prefects out of the 741 students in the college.
