Radiologist Dr Avaiata Ketenilagi was amazed with his son’s capacity to be resolute and achieve his goal he had set at the beginning of the year.

“I can vividly remember it was January this year when my son pinned a note on his bedroom wall saying I will work hard to get the dux award,” Dr Ketenilagi said after the school prizegiving.

His 13-year-old son and namesake was presented the Dux award of Labasa Sangam Primary School during the prizegiving at the school’s hall yesterday.

“Being the eldest of the four siblings he had always led by example, making sure to pray every day and work with determination,” Dr Ketenilagi said.

“I am really overjoyed and proud of my son who alone worked very hard and believing in God to reward him for his hardwork.”

Head boy Avaiata Junior scored 560 out of 600 in the Fiji Year Eighth Examination.

“I want to become a doctor like my father and this is why I am working very hard, making sure that I am a pride to my family and not being troublesome,” Avaiata said.

“I attribute my success firstly to God then family and teachers.

“Because God saw that I worked diligently and faithfully and he delivered his promise by rewarding me with Dux award.”

Avaiata was also awarded with Best Subject prizes in English, Social Science and Vernacular.

Dr Ketenilagi heads the Labasa Hospital radiology department.
