Empowering Tomorrow’s Leaders: A Story of Discipline and Unity

Discipline has emerged as a crucial aspect of learning, playing a key role in addressing bullying at Queen Victoria School (QVS). This belief is firmly held by the school’s head boy and baton of honor recipient for 2024, Anare Tabakaucoro. With roots in Nakalawaca Village, Namara Tailevu, Tabakaucoro hopes to foster trust between junior and senior students and restore the school’s legacy of safeguarding its younger students.

Tabakaucoro emphasized the importance of a safe and enjoyable school environment, especially for those students who leave their villages and islands to attend QVS.

Reflecting on his award, Tabakaucoro expressed gratitude and acknowledged the challenges faced during the cadet training week, noting it was a collective effort to deliver a commendable parade.

The 18-year-old is also determined to lead his Under-18 rugby team to retain the Dean’s rugby title for the school, a goal they are fervently pursuing.

Addressing the cadets at the parade, Major-General Ro Jone Kalouniwai, Commander of the Republic of Fiji Military Forces, praised the students for their dedication and professionalism, which he said reflect the highest standards of military discipline and camaraderie. He encouraged them to step out of their comfort zones, dream big, and rise to the challenge of becoming future leaders.

Kalouniwai called on the cadets to harness their talents and resources to bring about positive change, contributing to their school, communities, and the country.

Over 700 students participated in the parade, which also included the retiring of the old school colors, a tradition that had been upheld for 70 years before being replaced last year.
