The newly inducted headboy of Batinikama College and the 2017 Year 12 dux, intends to implement a strict time manage­ment system to juggle his respon­sibilities and achieve his dream of becoming a doctor.

Mohammed Shohel of Wailevu, Labasa said he was surprised to be inducted as a headboy.

“I had a childhood dream of be­coming a headboy, but when look­ing at my parents struggling to make a living, I decided to focus on my studies only,” the 17-year-old said.

“My father, Mohammed Sherriff, 46, is a causal worker at the Fiji Sugar Corporation Labasa Mill and my mother, Shamshad Bi, 45, does domestic duties.

“I am the only son in the family and my eldest sister got married,” Mohammed said.

“Aspiring to become a doctor is something that will require me to work extra hard and now that I am the headboy, I have to make time for everything so that I can perform my roles as expected.

“I will look at the needs of my col­leagues, because after all I want to become a doctor to serve the nation and this is the beginning.

“When I told my parents that I was inducted as a headboy they were so happy.”

Mohammed’s hobby is doing re­search. He scored 347 out of 400 in the Fiji Year 12 Certificate Exami­nation.

Meanwhile, Elice Pillay, who is as­piring to become a nurse, was also surprised to be inducted as headg­irl.

“Now that I am the headgirl, I will work with the 23 teachers making sure that our 166 students from Year Nine to 13 achieve excellence in their studies,” the 17-year-old of Siberia, Labasa said.

The youngest of three siblings, whose hobby is reading story books, said she was thankful to the teach­ers for choosing her to be headgirl.

There are 36 prefects.
