Pres­i­dent Ma­jor-Gen­eral (Ret’d) Jioji Kon­rote yes­ter­day de­liv­ered the mes­sage of hard work and per­se­ver­ance to the young boys of Fiji Na­tional Cub Cam­boree by proudly con­vey­ing the suc­cess of our 7s rugby team. Dur­ing the open­ing of the ninth Fiji Na­tional Cub Cam­boree at Drasa Ed­u­ca­tion In­sti­tute in Lautoka, the Pres­i­dent said: “The mem­bers of our 7s rugby team were once young boys like you who as­pired and dreamed of be­ing suc­cess­ful in life through their in­di­vid­ual and col­lec­tive hard work, their per­se­ver­ance and sac­ri­fice. “Our 7s Rugby Olympic medal have proven to our beloved na­tion and par­tic­u­larly to you young boys who are mem­bers of the club move­ment that there is no sub­sti­tute to hard work as the key to suc­cess and this is the chance I want to leave with you our cubs and youth of Fiji if you re­main fo­cused and per­se­vere in what you want to achieve in life noth­ing be­comes im­pos­si­ble.”

He told the au­di­ence they were Fiji’s fu­ture and they could con­tinue to demon­strate it to the world that Fiji could be as good as any other coun­try. Af­ter be­ing be­stowed as Chief Scout of Fiji re­cently, yes­ter­day was the first of­fi­cial en­gage­ment of the Pres­i­dent at such event.

“It is an honor to be part of an or­gan­i­sa­tion that stands for our duty to God duty to our coun­try and our duty to help other peo­ple these val­ues are re­flected in our prom­ises which we make as young cubs like you dif­fer­ent from other young peo­ple of your age,” he said. Pres­i­dent Kon­rote also as­sured that the World Or­gan­i­sa­tion of Scouts move­ment was sup­port­ive and forth­com­ing with its en­cour­age­ment and good wishes. More than 500 stu­dents from as far as Ka­davu and Lau are tak­ing part. Edited by Naisa Koroi
