New year, new leaders

Dawn Gibson
Friday, November 30, 2012

ANTICIPATION filled the room as the new head student appointments were made at International School (ISS) in Suva on Wednesday evening.

The announcements were made by the then 2012 student leaders who handed over their titles on the night, along with gifts of hope for the new year — tapa, a conch shell and a Fijian club.

ISS' new leaders for the coming year are Joshua Fonmoa for head boy, Meggan Turner for head girl, Sameer Patel for deputy head boy, Hana Elias for deputy head girl and Jae Hwan Kim for boys' sports head followed by Shaye-Marie Chow who was elected as girls' sports head.

The newly selected student leaders will assume their new posts in January 2013. As well as head student appointments, ISS also conducted their prize-giving ceremony which featured speeches by principal Dr Anna Marsden and chair of the school council, Mark Halabe.

Dr Marsden said 2012 had been an eventful year for the school, only made possible through the support of teachers, parents and the students.
