Cadet train­ing is meant to help in­stil im­por­tant virtues like dis­ci­pline, re­spect, courage and team work which are good for the stu­dents through­out their lives, says Rear Admiral Vil­iame Naupoto. The Com­man­der of the Repub­lic of Fiji Mil­i­tary Forces stressed this to 1249 cadets of Natabua High School on Fri­day in Lau­toka.

He said: “It is al­ways a bless­ing to wit­ness the Natabua High School cadet pass­ing out pa­rade. Af­ter all this is where school cadet started and be­cause of that there is al­ways an ex­pec­ta­tion that your pa­rade will be of the high­est stan­dard.”

While con­grat­u­lat­ing the cadets, he said the pa­rade met his ex­pec­ta­tions and told the stu­dents to be proud of their per­for­mances. “To the par­ents and fam­ily mem­bers your chil­dren and grand­chil­dren, your neph­ews and nieces have through this pass­ing out pa­rade of­fer you a glimpse of their tal­ents and po­ten­tial. I am sure they will make you proud as they ad­vance through their ma­tured lives and take up var­i­ous roles in the ca­reer and ca­reers they choose,” he said. Natabua High School pa­rade com­man­der, cadet ma­jor Robert Konousi said there were 180 Year 13 stu­dent grad­u­ates who took part on Fri­day.

“This is for the sec­ond con­sec­u­tive year that we have also had more than 1200 cadets par­tic­i­pat­ing in the pa­rade and it is a mile­stone achieve­ment,” he said. Cadet Ma­jor Konousi was the re­cip­i­ent of the Baton of Hon­our this year. The school also used drones to record the pa­rade and for­ma­tions. Edited by Naisa Koroi
