School badges young leaders

ONE hundred and fifty six young leaders were inducted as prefects at the Suva Muslim Primary School yesterday.

Headteacher Mohammed Hussain said these responsibilities now became a calling for students in maintaining discipline and personal growth in school.

"You have been called today (yesterday) to lead the students with great example and gratitude," Mr Hussain said.

"You must take ownership of these roles as young leaders and help teachers in carrying out responsible duties and maintaining discipline in school."

Chief guest Mohammed Gani congratulated the new prefects and challenged them on their role.

"The word prefect is basically derived from the Latin word praefectus which, basically refers to the leader of an administrative area and in this case, you as prefects," Mr Gani said.

"I wish to quote Mother Theresa who said, 'you have certain capabilities which I don't have, I have certain capabilities which you don't have, but together we can work towards achieving great results'.

"There is a difference between a good leader and a great leader. A good leader does his job and delivers of what is required of him, a great leader goes an extra mile in delivering a success and perfect result of what's being told to him to deliver."

Nine-year-old Meli Manuel was a happy student yesterday as he was inducted as a Year 4 prefect and said his new role was challenging.

"I felt good being chosen as a prefect this year. I will do my best making sure my friends don't misbehave in class or in school," Meli said.
