Sawani Primary School dux, Maria Elesi Nabete couldn’t stop thanking her parents after winning her award during the school’s prizegiving yesterday.

The 12-year-old of Nakorotubu, Ra, is the eldest of six children. Her mother, Alisi is a teacher and his father, Iowane is a farmer.

She said her parents had gone through a lot to send her to school and she was glad she was able to repay them with her achievement.

“I feel so great today. My parents have struggled a lot to provide whatever I need in school.

“They always tell me to concentrate on my school work and today I’m bearing the fruits of their advice.

“I dedicate my award to them,” Maria said.

“I hope to pursue my studies in science overseas.”

She will join Adi Cakobau School (ACS) next year.
