King George VI School graduating students challenged to be committed to achieve success

By Joanna Siriheti

King George Sixth National School in Honiara celebrated an important day in the school calendar yesterday, marking three school events: prize giving, graduation and school leaver's feast with
parents, relatives, friends and students flocked the school to witness the ceremony.

Speaking at the occasion, KGVI School Principal Mary Kejoa-Hanadarana reminded students that key to success in life depends very much on willingness and commitment "to help ourselves, and to make good use of the chances we have."

Mrs Hanadarana, in congratulating the graduating students, said the occasion should be a challenge to organise and fully use the unutilized opportunities in the years ahead.

"All throughout the year, students have been encouraged to take the initiative and be responsible not only in their academic studies, but in the different aspects of the school life such as their behavior, attitudes, boarding, cultural activities and social entertainments," she adds.

Mrs Hanadarana told the students that while "short fall in finance" made it impossible for more to receive prizes, "it's not how many prizes or qualifications we get that matters, rather it's how best we use the knowledge."

More than 500 forms three, five, six and seven students graduated in yesterday's ceremony.
