STUDENTS must train themselves to be self-disciplined and not rely on lawmakers to discipline them, Lae police chief Ivan Lakatani said during Huonville Primary School Grade eight graduation ceremony yesterday.
For this country to be trouble free and with productive leaders and citizens, the youth of every community must abstain from criminal activities and must uphold the values of respect, integrity and honesty, he said.
All students graduating throughout the country have their own goals but they must be very sure if that goal is reachable and achievable, he said.
This will help to develop good character and become agents of change for their people.
"When reflecting back in previous years and this year there have been fights that has come to the attention of police in almost all the provinces where they could not come up with a clear explanation of the causes, but it was reported that in a number of cases it was tied to cult activities," Mr Lakatani said.
The country needs smart and intelligent young leaders to lead the nation, guest speaker Jerry Kalai told parents and guardians during the graduation.
"Students need to prioritise your time with what you want to achieve. It is time now to reflect upon your academic year and make adjustments on where you’re going to make your stand in 2015 to be better students in your new schools," he said.
