Dux Zakariya Says He Will Miss Primary Years
It was an emotional moment yesterday for Mohammed Zakariya after he was named Dux of Sabeto Muslim Primary School in Nadi.
The 13-year-old will always have the moment etched in his memory since he plans to continue his studies at Nadi Muslim College next year.
“I am going to surely miss my old school, but I guess this is what the future has for me,” he said.
“I am so happy for receiving this achievement because this was not what I had expected.”
The ambitious student plans to be an engineer.
He won eight awards, which are: the Overall Highest mark in Year 8, Dux for 2016, Inclusive Education Certificate, highest in Health Science, highest in Social Science, certificate for Scouts, certificate for Quran Completion, and 3rd certificate Medal for Islamiyat.
His mother, Nameen Bi, was proud of his achievement.
“Although we have faced many complications we always manage to get through it,” she said.
“I guess family support is critical in encouraging our children to always work hard for accomplishments and success.”
