Labasa Mus­lim Col­lege on Fri­day bid farewell to 35 of its Year 13 stu­dents. The stu­dents, decked in their green robes, each marched up to re­ceive their cer­tifi­cates. “These stu­dents have worked re­ally hard in the year and have been in the school sys­tem for 13 years or more. I feel that these se­nior stu­dents de­serve a proper grad­u­a­tion,” prin­ci­pal Ji­ten­dra Prasad said.

“They will be tran­si­tion­ing through to ter­tiary ed­u­ca­tion next year and this is our gesture of farewell to our se­nior stu­dents and also to con­grat­u­late them for suc­cess­fully com­plet­ing high school.” It was an emo­tional time for some of the stu­dents. Head Boy Shivneel Reddy said he was hon­oured to have at­tended such a school. “My prin­ci­pal and teach­ers have been very sup­port­ive of me and my friends. I am so blessed to have been in a learn­ing en­vi­ron­ment which has pushed us to be the best, whether it be in the class­room or on the sports field,” Shivneel said.

“I will miss this place, but I know this is not the end of my jour­ney, but rather the open­ing of an­other chap­ter of my life.” Stu­dent Adi Kaveni Vakayavutabua said: “I would like to thank the man­age­ment for com­ing up with the idea to have this grad­u­a­tion for us. This is our fi­nal year in high school be­fore go out to ter­tiary and we could only hope for the best.” It has been three years since they rein­tro­duced the school tra­di­tion.
