Leone Lui has credited the hard work he does in helping his parents each day, as the reason he achieved his goal to become head boy of Dravo District School this year.

At the induction ceremony last Friday, the 13-year-old said: “My father is a farmer, and my mother is a market vendor and as the eldest in my family I have to help them every day and this really challenged me and mould me to work hard in school in order to achieve my goal so that I can support my parents and the rest of my family members in the future.

The lad who hails from Nailuva Village in Ra with maternal links to Naila Village in Bau, Tailevu also said he comes from humble beginnings which is what pushed him to work hard.

“Things are not always easy, and education is what will help,” he said.

“The head boy role means to be co-operative, helpful, well mannered, trustworthy and responsible and maintain a good academic record.

“A leader is not someone that orders students, but treats others with respect, follows the rules and be tolerant of differences.

“I will be able to balance my schoolwork and new role by using my time wisely and be at the right place at the right time.

“I dedicate this achievement to my parents and the staff and head teacher of Dravo District school.”

Meanwhile head girl Miriama Cirivakabola thanked her teachers for believing in her.

The 12-year-old hails from Ovea Village in Bau, Tailevu with maternal links to Mokani Village in Bau, Tailevu.

“I am the first in the family to be elected as the head girl. This role has made me realise that I must work hard every day in improving my actions and making fair decisions,” Miriama said.

“I believe one of the challenges I will face is choosing to do right while remaining in my circle of friends.

“My parents and grandparents have been encouraging and pushing me to be the best in everything.”

Twenty prefects were badged during the induction ceremony.
