?Don?t be the blind leaders of the blind, and be smart, but don?t be over smart.?

Those were the words of Andrews Primary School Head Teacher, Anasa Vateitei at their Prefects Induction ceremony earlier today.

More than 100 families gathered at the school to witness their sons and daughters being officially chosen as leaders of the school.

?It is so overwhelming to see the support from parents and management in today?s occasion,? Vateitei said.

Chief Guest at the ceremony, Matrix Risk Western Division Manager, Etuate Waqa shared an inspirational quote from former President of the American Management Association, James Hayes, with everyone present at the venue.

?If leaders are careless about basic things-Telling the truth, Respecting moral codes, proper professional conduct, and doing the right thing at all times-who can believe them on other issues?,? he said.

Newly elected Head Girl, 13-year-old from Namatakula, Nadroga, Daisy Batibasaga, said it is an honor for her to be given such a role.

?I would like to thank my parents for their support and Head Teacher for trusting me to give me this role,? she said.

Also sharing the same experience, newly elected Head Boy, Mohammed Azhar, was also happy to be one of the chosen ones.

?I feel good, I want to thank all the teachers for choosing to be the head boy of the school this year,? he said.

Meanwhile, Rina Chand was elected as Deputy Head Girl of the school, and Joshua Keegan was elected as Deputy Head Boy.

A total of 121 selected out 775 students of the school to carry out the role of Prefects, Environment Officers, Home line leaders and Road Patrol boys.
