Wairiki ground on Taveuni was a sea of blue as students of Holy Cross took part in their annual passing out parade yesterday.

The event also featured foot drills and commanding skills from the students of Holy Cross Primary School.

Police inspector general Assistant Commissioner of Police Isikeli Vuniwaqa stressed the importance of excellence to the cadets.

"The Fiji Police Force is entering an era where excellence is being stressed within all its ranks and this is the value that I want the children of Wairiki Holy Cross Primary and secondary school to sustain within them," he said.

"I lauded the support of parents, committees and the school management for prioritising the students' discipline as such exercises are meant to instil in cadets a life of self-discipline and obedience.

"Let us make excellence a standard under which we will carry out duties and live our daily lives and I promise the children and parents of this school that Cakaudrove will surely become a province with a bright future."

Holy Cross Primary School best male and female cadets, Anaseini Tavanavanua and Paula Tutani, said they learnt a lot.

The secondary school best female and male cadets, Paloto Wilson and Sereima Nuivatu, said the program was a stepping stone to their career paths.
