Tilak picks student leaders

THE co-ordinator of Continuing and Community Education at USP's Lautoka Campus, Rajendra Singh, has stressed the issue of leadership and the value of time in the process of learning.

Mr Singh told the Tilak High School prefect induction ceremony last week "responsibility is a harsh task to master".

"To demand it of others without demanding it of one's self is futile and irresponsible," he said.

"Proactive people recognise that responsibility. They do not blame circumstances. Their behaviour is a product of their own conscious choice, based on values rather than on feeling."

Mr Singh said the appointment of prefects and their training were important steps towards enhancing their leadership qualities.

"In these times we need leaders who can cut across all racial and ethnic boundaries and serve everyone compassionately.

"You will become a great leader one day if you think what you can do for your school and not what the school can do for you."

Mr Singh told the students that leadership was an art "which needs to be nurtured".

Anabelle Chand and Sanjesh Kumar were inducted as the school's head girl and head boy respectively.
