MILITARY commander Brigadier General Mosese Tikoitoga has challenged students of Bua to use their abilities to soar through life.
He has also reminded the students of Ratu Luke Secondary School that associating themselves with cadet programs was an initiative that allowed basic grounding of personal discipline to develop a sense of character.
"We collectively need to ensure we give our children the correct training, guidance and mentoring so they can be better replacements to us in the future," he said.
"Basically, the marchpast is a clear indication of teamwork, discipline and obedience displayed through the drill movements you have shown. You obeyed these words of commands with willingness and unity and it is the bond you have created that has formed the spirit of teamwork.
"Around the world, it has been proved that teamwork has worked out well for many and I wish to remind you to consider yourselves as individual resources for development."
Brig-Gen Tikoitoga told the students they needed to maintain their obedience to their parents and teachers and be punctual to school.
"You need to ensure that the same level of respect demonstrated to instructors, are given to both parents and teachers," he said.
"You must show confidence and believe in yourself in whatever tasks given to you and never forget to always work as a team. Only then, you will see a bright future ahead of you."
Parade commander Letima Regu said leading the parade was a good experience.
