YOU have got to learn to be obedient. Obedient starts within a home, you are going to be our leaders of tomorrow

President Jioji Konrote said this while officiating at the Rotuma High School prefects’ investiture ceremony yesterday.

The young leaders got to learn a lesson or two about leadership from Mr Konrote reminded students to continue challenging their limits, be innovative, visionary and have the courage to stand for what is right.

“You are the team leaders for these young boys and girls. I congratulate you all. Now let me remind you that leadership is all about serving. Leadership is the ability to get people what you want them to do. And they will only do that if they have trust and confidence in you,” Mr Konrote said.

Konrote also reflected his days as a school prefect and now as the Head of State to communicate some valuable lessons to some 36 students of Rotuma High School.

“Your appointment as prefects comes with a lot of responsibilities, and you must undertake these responsibilities with courage, tenacity, righteousness and humility”
