Duke's award for students

THIRTY-six students from four high schools on Vanua Levu have been awarded the Duke of Edinburgh International medals and certificates.

Youth and Sports Minister Commander Viliame Naupoto was in Labasa yesterday to present the awards to students of Batinikama Secondary School, Bulileka Sanatan College and Valebasoga Secondary School in Labasa, and Naikavaki Secondary School in Bua, for their community efforts and completing the international programs.

As part of the program, students engaged themselves in recreational activities, community work and life skill training, among others.

Mr Naupoto said the program was an opportunity for the students to discover and explore new talents.

"The program allows you to explore yourself and also encourages people to know their skills and potentials," he said.

"The program also allows you to develop yourself to your full capacity and when you go through this, you will find that life pulls things out of you. This means that the things you want to do or want to become is already there with you.

"You just have to discover it within you and explore it."

Mr Naupoto also encouraged the students to work hard in school.

"Have confidence and trust your capabilities in order to become a successful person in life."

Some teachers of the schools were also awarded with the program certificates.
