Greetings Your Eminence and fellow AFC Family!
Despite the hype of activities here we still manage to carry out our 2nd Common Paper Assessments last week and this week. While the results (15%) will accumulate into the Mid-Year Exams, this exercise is diagnostic in nature as it will expose the areas that teachers need to focus their intervention practices on.
The talk of the town today is the unique display of marching skills by AFC as they marched through Ma'ufanga on their way to town. We then led the march through town and were the first school to enter the Royal Palace and thereupon we did a slow march and royal salute to their Majesties. It's one of those rare and golden moments that will be cherished for quite a long time as I led the march right through from here, even the slow march at the Palace. I suppose my military training with Commodore Bainimarama is still intact!! Personally, I felt very proud watching the staff and students put on their best, beginning with their new blazers (Form 7's and top 4 Prefects), and in the order of events.
The icing on the cake for the day was the grand performance displayed by our Senior 1XV as they outclassed our fellow Catholic school Takuilau 42-6. I had earlier told our boys to take it easy as they are their brothers, so they did exactly that, dishing out a brotherly lesson!
We had just finished celebrating a Thanksgiving Mass for all the wonderful efforts of the week before allowing our students to break for the day, a well-deserved one! It'll also be a long weekend as Monday is a public holiday.
Our lone participant in the National Talent Quest is Sangato Sosefo Finau, a Form 2 student who is one of the finalists The event will be held at the Atele Indoor Stadium this evening at 7. If you're around please cheer for him and text 5741 as audience votes.
