Facebook is a waste of time for students, says Ashitosh Rishay Prasad.

This was the message he relayed to students at the Bhawani Dayal Arya College prizegiving yesterday.

The 15-year-old scooped the medals for being the top scorer of Year Nine English, Mathematics, Commercial Studies and Basic Science.

He also received certificates for attaining the second place in Social Science, Hindi, Basic Technology and the first prize in the overall for Year Nine.

“I believe having access to social sites like Facebook is a big distraction for students; managing time wisely is very important for students who want to achieve excellent results at the end of an academic year.

“I don’t see any importance of Facebook for a student my age and I will always make sure that I don’t involve myself in such things because I know for sure it will distract me from my studies; my education is my number priority,” he said.

Ashitosh said it is important for students to make the right decisions regarding their academic life.

“Everything I have achieved today is because of my sacrifice and hard work, at the beginning of the year I will always set an aim and I always made sure that I work towards achieving that aim and I have achieved it today (yesterday).

“I am humbled and wish to thank my family for their support; my mother for always waking me early in the morning to prepare for another school and sacrifices of my hardworking father,” he said.

Proud mother, Rina Prasad said her son was a hardworking student.
