The efforts of Jai Narayan College Year 12 student Ratu Manoa Tavaga, were recognised yesterday when as he was announced the co-winner of an essay writing competition organised by the New Zealand High Commission.

He also received the Outstanding Achievers Award in Accounting and Economics at the school’s prizegiving ceremony.

Hailing from Rewa, he believes that he has accomplished the goals that he had set for himself at the beginning of this year.

He said the expectation of the school had pushed him to work hard.

“This school has really high expectations and at times, those expectations are not easy to live up to, but at least I am happy to have accomplished something,” he said.

He said his achievement was made through making sacrifices such as refusing to go out with friends or be influenced by peer pressure.

He also said he was glad to not have studied under a lamp post, but he did study late at night and had to use the light on his mother’s phone.

“There is no specific time allocated for studying. It’s mostly impromptu, like after school, I sleep then wake up and start studying,” he said.

He says that his mother, aunty, relatives and cousins were always there to support him at times of need.

Minister for Health and Medical Services Rosy Akbar was the chief guest at the prizegiving ceremony .
