MORE than 80 students of Vunimono High School were inducted as school prefects by the Minister for Youth and Sports Commander Viliame Naupoto at the school hall on Thursday.
Commander Naupoto said students, in whatever difficulty they faced, must continue to work hard in achieving their goals in life.
Vunimono High School head boy Ramitesh Datt Maharaj said he was honoured to have been chosen by the teachers and students to be the school head boy.
Mr Maharaj said he did not expect to be the head boy, especially now having the responsibility to look after more than 1000 students in school.
"I surely need the support of the Students Council and the teachers this year to look after such a large number of students," he said.
"I hope that the students would follow the rules and regulations of the school so that we can have a great academic year."
Ramitesh's father Kesho Datt Maharaj said he was proud of his son and that it was through discipline that his son was chosen as the head boy.
Vunimono High School head girl Vitila Smith Sirivalu said she now had a lot of responsibility and needs to prioritise her school work better.
Ms Sirivalu said she hoped to carry out her responsibility well this year.
