Update: 6:42PM More than 150 students took part in the Montfort Boys Town cadet passing out parade today at the school.
The students were told of the importance of hard work and trying to achieve excellence at a young age during the passing out parade.
Youth and Sports Minister Commander Viliame Naupoto who was the chief guest at the event said excellence is about giving 100 per cent all the time.
"Excellence is doing what is right because you know that it is right, not because someone is watching or because you fear punishment," Commander Naupoto told the cadets.
"Excellence demands continuous learning, from everyone and anyone. It's about learning all your life."
