F disc & rear V brake is a good solution. If there are no disc mounts on your fork then you need a new fork.

V brakes are generally acceptable stopping for most uses - when they were introduced in the mid '90s it turned the bike world on its ear. Discs are marginally better, especially in wet conditions, but properly set up V brakes are strong enough for just about any situation I can think of.
