Focus on discipline and teamwork

SEVEN hundred and twenty students of Gospel High School and Gospel Primary School braved the scorching sun during the school cadet passing-out parade yesterday.

Discipline and teamwork were the main focus of the school's parade with students learning military formation and instructions.

Parents and friends watched in awe as students displayed what they had learnt on the school ground.

Chief guest and Fiji Gospel Churches Trust chairman Howard Politini said the students have had the opportunity to experience and learn, through the cadetship over several weeks, the rigours of discipline that is the basic part of every professional soldier's basic training in the area of parade drills.

"They have worked hard under their instructors to produce today's turn-out," Mr Politini said.

"Please appreciate that this form of military discipline teaches more than synchronised marching and performing foot drills and this is a discipline that requires concentration, co-ordination and immediate obedience to commands."
