LABASA College is one of the highest achieving schools for Fiji School Leaving Certificate Examinations (FSLC) and Fiji Seventh Form Examinations (FSFE) in the country, says Minister for Education Filipe Bole.
He made the comment at the school's prize giving ceremony for forms Six and Seven yesterday.
A proud Mr Bole said the school was a model government secondary school for Fiji.
"I am proud to say that this school recorded 100 per cent pass rate for FSLC in 2011 and last year.
"For FSFE, the school recorded 97.3 per cent last year," he said.
"I must also compliment the school for having the highest number of candidates of 188 sitting for the FSFE exams last year compared to the other schools.
"The current school roll of 531 speaks volume of what the school stands for and that is to support and promote the education of children with the vision to inculcate quality education and help mould independent individuals."
Mr Bole urged students to continue their studies during the school breaks.
"During the seven weeks of holiday, practise your maths and English.
"Also practise good values and virtues that your parents and teachers taught you," he said.
Mr Bole also thanked the parents, guardians and teachers for supporting their children's education.
