The Minister for Agriculture, Rural and Maritime Development and National Disaster Management, Inia Seruiratu shared a lifelong lesson to the student of Vunimono High School yesterday.

He stressed the importance of quality education and making good and brighter choices in life.

“The school system does not presume to make you who, or what you should become. The system only equips and empowers you with the knowledge to be able to grow and make choices,” he said.

“This important because you, as children pounding at the thresholds of adulthood, are all now at a stage where you will need to make choices, including some extremely important choices that will determine the course of your lives,” he added.

Meanwhile, when Chaandvi Prasad’s name was announced the Dux she said: “I was surprised and overwhelmed at the same time because we were not informed about who the Dux will be.”

The active 18-year-old said, there was a lot of competition in her class. She also took part in many of the school activities and she had to do a lot of reading as well. But she was able managed it still.

“Being a pure science student was not easy yet challenging because I sacrificed a lot to get here,” she added.

Chaandvi wishes to take up biomedical engineering next year in Australia. Biomedical engineering is the application of engineering principles and design concepts to medicine and biology for healthcare purposes.
