Manoa Iranacolaivalu and Lilian Tawake are determined to instil discipline among students during their term of leadership.

The duo were inducted as the head prefects of Sila Central High School in Nausori on Thursday.

The school badged a total of 62 leaders including captains, house prefects, deputy heads and head prefects. They will lead about 600 students.

Lilian, 17, who hails from Yacata Village in Cakaudrove Province, Vanua Levu, said her priority was to see students behave in an orderly manner by following all rules of the school.

“I want to bring discipline to this school because of discipline issues,” she said.

“I also want to help them learn about life. I’ll have gender meetings and speak to the students about it.”

She dedicated her achievements to her parents.

“My dad is a construction worker and my mum does domestic duties,” Lilian said.

“My father has sacrificed a lot, he works overtime to provide us with a better life.”

She wants to improve their standard of living by becoming a navy officer, something she aspired to become from childhood.

She is also hoping to participate in the Coca Cola Games this year.

“I am also an athlete but I will balance my leadership roles, sports and studies by praying about it because God helps everyone,” she said.

“I have never participated in the Coca Cola Games but I had almost reached there, I’m hoping to make it happen this year.”

Head boy, Manoa is well known for his leadership qualities. His elder brother was also badged the head boy of his school in Taveuni during his time.

“Two of my siblings are in this school and I am the second eldest,” he said.

“I will try my best to instil discipline in them so that they can maintain the leadership legacy.”

He is grateful for the encouragement from his parents and dedicated his achievements to them.

“My dad is a farmer and my mum does domestic duties. I want to thank them for supporting me and my teachers for believing in me,” he said.
