Average scholar Kajol Seth had to put in the extra effort to take out the Dux award yesterday at Assemblies of God High School prizegiving at the school in Kinoya in Nasinu.

“I was shocked when told that I am the Dux of the school.

“I was emotional at first and I feel so proud,” Kajol said.

Ms Seth said it was always her aim to emulate her elder sister who was Dux of the school.

“I’m an average learner but somehow I progressed and it brought me through,” Kajol said.

Kajol’s mum Lailendra Devi said the award winner sacrificed a lot to get there.

“Kajol really sacrificed a lot, sometimes she doesn’t sleep and I’m always there making her coffee because I want the best for her,” Ms Devi said.

“She deserves this because she has been working really hard for it.”

Kajol set a new record last year for the highest mark in the Fiji Year 12 Certificate Examination for AOGHS with a total of 363 out of 400.

She said that her parents were always supporting her and they were the backbone for her achievements.

“I sacrificed a lot and I’m hoping to do Bachelor of Medicine, Bachelor of Surgery (MBBS) next year,” she said.

Ms Devi said she was very proud of her daughter.

“Kajol is an average learner but I really tried my best to push her,” she said.

“We are not so rich, but I always encourage her to study hard and stand on her feet.

“I don’t want her to have a life like mine. Our wages are not good but I always try and provide her with whatever she needs.”

Mrs Devi said her two daughters walked away with the AOGHS Dux Awards.

Meanwhile, Queen Victoria School vice principal Elemaca Ravulo yesterday paid tribute to the Assemblies of God High School for hosting their students after Cyclone Winston.

“Without the Assemblies of God High School (AOGHS) our boys wouldn’t have made it today,” said Mr Ravulo.
