Lomary Catholic Secondary School principal Iosefo Masiveu yesterday praised the achievement of Year 13 student award winner, Paul Chang.

“I remember when Paul came. He was academically challenged but the teachers worked extra hard on his education to get him to this stage,” Mr Masiveu said.

“Paul has a very promising future and is a topper of the school as he scored the highest mark of 363 out of 400 in the Navua district for Fiji Year 12 Certificate Examination 2015,” Mr Masiveu said.

The 20-year-old from Deuba Village took home seven certificates, six trophies plus the Principal’s Award during the school’s annual prizegiving ceremony at the school in Deuba.

He won the highest mark prizes in mathematics, chemistry, physics, introduction to information technology and Year 13 second prize, as well as highest aggregate Fiji Year 12 Certificate Examination 2015.

Paul said his success came from his family and teachers who helped support his academic work.

“I was a weak student in school but my family and especially my teachers have supported me more than anyone else,” he said.

“I live with my relatives in the village and I am thankful that I made them proud, especially winning the Principal’s Award which I never expected.”

Meanwhile, nineteen-year-old Elisabeta Yauyau walked away with the best all-rounder award.

The Year 13 student of Navidamu Village in Macuata, Vanua Levu, took home six recognition certificates, six trophies and the best sportswoman award.

She has been living in Nakoba settlement in Galoa with her aunt Marie Taukei for many years.

“I am raised by my aunt because my mother and family live in Macuata,” she said.

“I thank my aunt for all the help and support she has given me to fulfil my dreams and achieve the awards.”
