The Commander Republic of Fiji Military Force, Rear Admiral Viliame Naupoto while speaking to teachers and students of Magodro Secondary School in Bukuya Village, Navosa on Wednesday 14 April 2021 stressed that bullying has no place in schools and all must stand to take care of the weak and the vulnerable.

The issue of bullying in particular at boarding schools has been making the news lately and the Commander has come out publicly to condemn this act. As a former boarding student himself, Rear Admiral Naupoto knows too well the nitty gritty of boarding life and has come out to denounce the abuse of power against peers.

“We continue to hear terrible news of bullying in boarding schools and I want to emphasise that bullying has no place in schools. Those who bully think they are powerful, but I say they are the weakest students in school. The strongest pupils are those who stand for those who are weak,” the Commander RFMF said.

He spoke directly to boys of the school, encouraging them to be the hand that help protect and not the hand that abuse the vulnerable.

“You must tell yourselves that now is the time to change and put it in mind that when you grow up to be men that you will help protect women, girls and children. It all starts here in school to make that change,” he told them.

The Commander RFMF and his team were on a 3-day charity visit around schools in Nadi donating uniforms and shoes to assist students whose families have been affected due to Covid.

This assistance was made possible from proceeds and donations from the 2020 Ratu Sukuna Bowl challenge.
