Adi Cakobau School held its prefects’ induction ceremony yesterday, badging five head prefects.

Estelle badged as headgirl, makes mum proud.

My daughter had a dream to be the head girl of the school and she has finally accomplished it.

This is what Anna Tabua Bogidrau said about her daughter Estelle, at the induction ceremony yesterday.

“My daughter is an achiever as she has succeeded in life from a very young age and I know she will keep on going beyond our expectations,” Mrs Bogidrau said.

“I always encourage my daughter to always be firm with the students and also be friendly with the students.”

Estelle said: “I am honoured to be chosen to lead the students this year. I know that this year will come with its challenges, but I know that we have capable deputy head girls and prefects.

“I know the badge requires a lot from us and I know that we will be able to overcome the challenges that will be thrown our way.

“I know I can work a little bit extra and make it possible for me to fulfil all the responsibilities I am given.”


Deputy head girl acknowledges dad’s sacrifices.

Deputy head girl Taraivosa Taqiritawa spoke about her father, after she was badged yesterday.

The 17-year-old said: “My father is a yaqona farmer and he works hard to provide a better life for my family and I,” she said.

“Being a farmer is not easy and I see the struggles my father has to go through to give my siblings and I a better life.

“My father is a good provider for my family and me. I dedicate my new role to him.

“I am working hard so that I can look after him to thank him for the sacrifices he has made.

“As a child, I look up to my father because he is a good role model and he always gives my siblings and I advise. He encourages us to be the better version of ourselves.”


Jane excels already.

As Jane Cai (pronounced as ‘Kai’) was badged as deputy head girl yesterday, it was also revealed that she had scored the highest in the school in last year’s Fiji School Leaving Certificate (FSLC) exam.

The 18-year-old had scored 390 out of 400.

“Next month will be the fifth year my family and I have been in Fiji and those five years I have spent it here at ACS,” she said.

“Having to study in ACS is one of the best experiences in my life and this has contributed to my achievement.

“Boarding life is fun, and I love it. When I was in China, I tried boarding for a term in China before we moved to Fiji. I got a little idea of how boarding life would be.

“I had a goal to achieve so that I can give something back to the school because the teachers and students have been good to me. I worked hard to attain the marks I scored.

“At ACS I got to learn the importance of always having your sisters’ backs. We work together to motivate and encourage each other and to always be there for each other.”

Jane is aiming to become a forensic accounting or business intelligence analyst one day.
