Discipline takes former head boy a long way

COLIN Powell believes discipline at Levuka Public School helped him become a better person.

The former police officer, who has treasured the memory of being the head boy in 1979, travelled to Fiji from New Zealand to be part of the school reunion.

Sharing his story yesterday, the 53-year-old said it was quite an emotional moment to see the blend of former and current students gather in Levuka for the same reason. He added such a gathering was an inspiration to present students to do their best, particularly in their studies.

He rated former school teacher Tiu Malo as his role model and someone who instilled discipline in him as a youth.

"We called him Major Malo because he was also a member of the territorial force, he was very strict with us and discipline was up the top of the list," Mr Powell recalled.

"I feel good to be back here after 10 years and I am really proud. I still have brothers and sisters here in Levuka and it's good I get to come back and meet the old scholars. We look forward to more of this gathering."

He urged students to study hard and grab every opportunity to succeed in life.
