“I will make sure students do not swear, bully or create mischief,” he said.

“At the same time, it’s well known that these students may come from different backgrounds and some­times they swear and disrespect the teachers so I will ensure that stops.

“I want to lead them to become better individuals in the future.

“I was brought up at my mother’s village of Nalidi, Ra, then I came to the kindergarten here till Year Eight. My father was the sole bread winner and my mother a domestic worker.”

He said his once his older siblings secured employment and got mar­ried, the responsibility to financial­ly support his family was equally shared.

“Now they (his older brother and sister) are the ones supporting our family, we stay near the school and it just takes two minutes to walk home.

“I know my parents would be proud of me because we came from the village and I achieved this,” he added.

Head girl Tanvi said: “I grew up here, unfortunately my mother left us last year so I have a single par­ent. My father is amazing and I have two siblings, all girls. My old­er sister is at Natabua High School and my youngest sister is in Year Five 5.

“I have been a perfect since I be­gan school after kindergarten so I developed that ability at a young age.

“I want to be a role model for oth­ers. To be a guide and a leader and I will help teachers maintain rule and regulations.”
