PARENTS, guardians and teachers deserve many thanks for allowing and encouraging their children and students to join the school cadet program, says Youth and Sports Minister Commander Viliame Naupoto.

"I am sure they will make you more proud as they advance through their school life into responsible adults with the careers they will take up," Cmdr Naupoto told parents during the Montfort Boys Town passing-out parade last Friday.

"The proud parents and guardians of the young cadets passing out today (Friday) deserves particular congratulations. Your children have, through this passing-out parade, offered you a glimpse of their talents and potential and you should be justly proud of what they have achieved."

He told the 95 cadets they had two things in abundance, which were energy and creativity, at this stage of their lives.

"When you choose to participate in programs such as cadet training and other similar programs, you will discover new talents that you never thought you had.

"You will very quickly learn new skills that you may have otherwise never learnt if you confine yourselves to the classroom environment, you will be surprised as to what you can do when you tackle the challenges of such programs."

He said students needed to continue to explore their talents, continue to challenge themselves to try something new and continue to discover themselves.

"Cadet training targets an important ingredient of success and that is attitude. Your classroom works targets academic achievement but sadly that alone will not guarantee success."
