It’s that time of the year when students front up to celebrate their achievements and success for the year.

As a newspaper, the Fiji Sun, joins in the celebrations, by highlighting prizegiving events.

From tiny tots to tertiary students, educational achievements are a cause for celebration at all levels. If students do well in primary they are most likely to continue at secondary level and beyond.

There is a consistent theme that connects all the achievers. It comes through their stories that are being published in the Fiji Sun.

Take Rabi boy Taievu Katarate for example. He went and enrolled at Ratu Kadavulevu School this year in Year 13. Despite the new environment, he excelled and became the school dux.

Right from the beginning of the year, he focused on the purpose of why he was at RKS. It’s one of those top schools that boys compete to attend.

He said goals could be attained easily if one worked hard. He spoke of using his time wisely and being productive. He dreams of becoming a civil engineer and he will get there if he continues using the same formula. He expressed his gratitude to the teachers and students for what he has learned.

At Nasinu’s Rishikul Sanatan College, dux Martin Feussner, did the same thing as Taievu did. When he balanced his time he found it a lot simpler. He wants to become a physician and he appears to have the right attitude to become one.

Twins Hefal and Heeral Kalyan of Jai Narayan College in Suva, winners of the Year 13 top awards, worked hard and helped each other. They paid tribute to the support of their parents. Their father, Mr Kalyan said the girls were disciplined and they had been consistent performers. The girls’ goal is a career in medicine. Fellow student Nishal Lal, who scooped the highest science subject awards, has also set his sights on becoming a doctor. He said: “ My hard work and late nights have paid off today.”

In Nadi College, Ashna Arishma Kumar, celebrated her success as dux and thanked her parents for their love and support. She did her bit too by studying hard.

These achievers have highlighted that the road to success is built on hard work, effective time management and focusing on the tasks required.

They also emphasised the importance of parental support. In homes where the parents or guardians support their children and show a keen interest in their school activities, the children are most likely to succeed.

Education is an important partnership between the children and their parents. The teachers complement that partnership.

The Fiji Sun congratulates all the achievers this year, their parents and teachers.
