Nasinu wins Foot drill competition.
26 October, 2009
The inmates of the Nasinu Reformative Center, after winning their trophy from the inmates drill competition at Naboro.
Youth, energy, enthusiasm and good understanding of basic drill skills, saw the young Nasinu Reformative Training Centre’s Inmates Foot-drill team take top honours at the Fiji Prisons and Corrections Service Annual Foot-drill competition.
Competing with four other institutions and fighting off a strong challenge from last year’s winners Naboro Medium, Suva Prisons, Pre-release Centre and Naboro Minimum Prison, the young brigade held their own against much older inmates.
The drill competition is an annual event and this year it was held at the FPCS Academy in Naboro as part of October Yellow Ribbon Month.
Drilling to the cadence of the Fiji Police Force Drum-line, the lads from Nasinu executed their moves to perfection that even had Fiji Police Force Drill Sergeant W Tara smiling.
“I have been a Drill Sergeant for 10 years and the display put on today by all the teams is exceptional, they even beat some police and army teams,” Sergeant Tara said.
Supervisor of Nasinu ASP Hari Nath said that he was very confident of his team to take out the top honours.
“I knew my team was well prepared, because my staff led by Chief Prison Officer Rokodiva had done all the hard work.
“In my morning briefing to the team, I only mentioned one word “qaqa” (win) and they have delivered.”
Foot-drill is a strategy that the FPCS uses to instill discipline and teamwork amongst the inmates.
