The deputy head­boy and deputy head­girl have set ex­am­ples for their ju­niors dur­ing the Gospel High School passin­gout pa­rade yes­ter­day. Ba­ton of Hon­our Award win­ner and Pa­rade Com­man­der, the deputy head­boy, Iliesa Mo­ceituba, said he was more than amazed.

“I felt ex­cited es­pe­cially when the six days of hard work comes to an end. The cadet pass­ing-out pa­rade this morn­ing felt rather sad, be­cause our en­joy­ment and fun dur­ing re­hearsals of six days was over. “I felt hon­oured when I was an­nounced to be the Pa­rade Com­man­der as I’m only the deputy head­boy and the po­si­tion was des­ig­nated for the head­boy.”

Iliesa said cadet­ship was a les­son where dis­ci­pline was taught to stu­dents there­fore, if the op­por­tu­nity arises, his ad­vise to other stu­dents is to take the op­por­tu­nity be­cause dis­ci­pline and obe­di­ence can take a per­son far in life. And the Best Fe­male Cadet Award was awarded to third in com­mand and deputy head­girl Divisha Rao, who said she would like her ju­niors to fol­low their foot­steps and set ex­am­ples for oth­ers. “I am thank­ful to God, my par­ents, teach­ers and the staff of my school, and the Repub­lic of Fiji Mil­i­tary Forces in­struc­tors for giv­ing me an op­por­tu­nity to be­come a much bet­ter per­son than I am,” she said.

“I feel re­ally ex­cited be­cause this is my fifth year as a cadet. I had al­ways ad­mired the sol­diers since pri­mary school and I al­ways wanted to be one of them and ex­pe­ri­ence their lives.” “Cadet im­proves our lis­ten­ing skills. It is not only an ex­tra-cur­ric­u­lar ac­tiv­ity, but it also helps us with our aca­demic sub­jects as well, be­cause our lis­ten­ing skills are very im­por­tant in our stud­ies,” she said.
