Prefects challenged

Mere Naleba
Thursday, February 08, 2018

Prefects of Suva Muslim College were reminded that with power comes great responsibility.

Speaking to the students during the school's prefect's induction ceremony on Tuesday, chief guest and Minister for Health Rosy Akbar told the student leaders to keep their feet grounded while they reached for the stars.

"It is a momentous moment, power is bestowed upon you and power can be taken away from you should you fail to perform, the same applies to me," Ms Akbar said.

"Anybody that has been given the task to lead should do it with utmost responsibility."

The students were also advised to promote multiculturalism and religious tolerance.

Ms Akbar reminded them of the need to be accepting towards other races and religion in schools.

The event was also a proud moment for newly-elected head boy of the school Sailosi Raisele, who said dealing with discipline issues of students was a challenge he looked forward to.

Mr Raisele, 18, thanked his guardians Asena and Josua Raisele, as well as his grandparents Lavenia and Nemani Buresova, for their guidance and providing him the platform to do better academically.
