Leadership training for students

Torika Tokalau
Thursday, April 10, 2014

BAULEVU High School deputy head boy Malakai Tani was happy that he woke up early to make the trip with 25 fellow students to Rishikul High School in Valelevu last week.

The students of Baulevu joined 25 other schools from the Central Division, including Navua and Tailevu, for the prefects and leadership seminar.

"I have learnt a lot, especially in the confidence that I need to address my fellow students, so I can successfully carry out my job as a prefect," Tani said.

"I am naturally a shy person and I know that my role as a prefect requires me to step out of my comfort zone."

He said apart from learning about confidence, he also learnt the importance of public speaking and leadership.

"When I go back to school I will make sure I improve myself as a leader.

"I want to make sure we the prefects of Baulevu High School, have a common goal in addressing issues that affect young people so we can improve the student body."
