The thought of becoming head girl never ever entered the mind of Kelera Naudu.

The fourth youngest of seven children was brought up by her cousin, Amelia Selai and Ms Selai’s husband, Menausi Yaukitoga at Tovatova, Nadi away from her parents for the past two years.

The couple, who are vegetable farmers, had stepped in to be Kelera’s guardians to help her achieve her dream of becoming a teacher someday.

Ms Selai said it was a proud moment to see her cousin get badged as head girl.

“It is indeed a happy day, we are lucky the school steps in at times to help her with her education,” she said.

Kelera, 14, had only one wish and that was to have her siblings and parents witness the occasion of being badged as head girl of Mulomulo Muslim Primary School in Nadi.

“I miss them,” she said.

“My dream is to become a teacher one day because I love children.”

Sheikh Imraz and Loriza Begum also got to witness their son, Rehaan Sheikh inducted as head boy.

Rehaan’s twin brother, Rizwaan Sheikh was inducted as a school prefect.

Rehaan dedicated his achievement to his late sister, Nurainah Sheikh who died in a car accident in 2019.

“Today is for my sister and my hard working parents,” he said.

He aspires to become a doctor in future.

The Attorney-General and Minister for Economy, Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum officiated at the school’s prefects induction.

A total of 16 class prefects, three wash prefects and 12 school prefects were inducted.

In his address, the A-G told students that as individuals, we should treat others fairly and with justice.

“We should not be unjust to people. We need to be fair, we need to treat people with justice,” the A-G said.

The A-G also launched Walesi at the school.

The school received the Walesi connection, set top box and tv screen for free.
