Principal  Acknowledges School Persistence

 

During the Jai Narayan College prizegiving ceremony yesterday, school principal Segran Pillay acknowledged the work being done to help the school and its students succeed.

With their theme, ‘Discipline and Hardwork: Prerequisites for Academic Success’, staff, teachers and parents of Jai Narayan College (JNC) gathered together to recognise many of the school’s outstanding students.

“2016 proved to be a very challenging year for the school as several of our senior teachers were transferred on promotion, resigned or retired during the year,” he said.

Despite this, he said the school had emerged over the last few decades as a college with a difference, as a promising institution in the region, providing value added quality education, and an institution striding towards excellence.

Mr Pillay said that the facilities and reputation the school body enjoys is because of the people who had sacrificed their time to ensure students of the college get the best.

The principal also thanked the JNC Student Council, led by Ajay Narayan and Koroi Qionimacawa, for raising around $2000 for the Cyclone Appeal.

He said he believes all students should be safe, engaged, supported and challenged to fit the realm of today and tomorrow.

Mr Pillay said according to the Ministry of Education’s Exam Results, 155 students from Jai Narayan College had sat for the Fiji Year 12 Certificate Examination in 2015 and 99 per cent passed. 97 students sat for the Fiji Year 13 Certificate Examination in the same year where 96 had passed.

This year, two students, Joshua Gideon Hope and Raksha Chaundrey, had scored the overall highest marks in the Year 10 external exams, while Year 12 student Neekil Samut scored the highest mark of 392 out of 400.

The Biology and Chemistry Teams won third place during national finals, which have become the best results for the school to date.
