AFTER a lapse of seven years, about 900 students of Ratu Sukuna Memorial School braved the scorching sun to showcase their drill formation during the school's passing-out parade.

Students from Year 9 to Year 13 of RSMS displayed discipline and teamwork after 14 weeks of gruelling military training at the school yesterday.

Parents, teachers, guardians and old scholars witnessed the event as chief guest Prime Minister Rear Admiral (Ret) Voreqe Bainimarama told the cadets the training was more than just about joining the army one day.

He said it taught them how to be disciplined in their lives every day.
