Jonathan Matiavi believes the key to good leadership is discipline.

The responsibility now rests upon him after he was badged as the head boy of Ratu Kadavulevu School yesterday, leading almost 800 students in this academic year.

While addressing students and parents during the induction ceremony, the 18-year-old said it was important that students were to be instilled with good values and manners.

“To lead a legendary school is not easy, but with the right support from the teachers, parents and guardians, it will put everything in its rightful place,” he said.

“Thank you for trusting me with this leadership role.

“I dedicate this achievement to my parents who both work tirelessly to put me in school.

“My parents are the epitome of love and I really thank them for believing in me.”

His mother, Reijeli Matiavi said she felt like the proudest mother on earth when she got the good news. It was around midnight last Tuesday when she was informed of the role his son was going to take.

“When the phone rang in the middle of the night, I got suspicious thinking something might have gone wrong, but when they told me of the news, I screamed my lungs out,” she said.

“I burst into tears knowing that my son is going to lead the school.

“I’m so proud of my son for always listening to us and it has been shown today through the leadership role.”
