Dedication and sacrifice paid off  for Rishikul Sanatan College after taking first place in the National Category of the Chem Quiz Battle.

The event was held during the Chemical Society of the South Pacific Annual Awards Ceremony at the University of the South Pacific Laucala Campus on Saturday.

Minister for Industry, Trade and Tourism Faiyaz Koya officiating at the event told students to encourage other students to take up science subjects in school.

“To bring home the topic of science, we do have a shortage of experts in the science field,” Mr Koya said.

“It is a field that the Fijian Government is strongly focusing on and dedicating resources and “I see among us promising young people, who will one day join the rank of distinguished scientists and academic,” he said. Mr Koya urged youths to not only be job seekers, but also be job creators. He said there was a need to expand the number of experts in the field of science in Fiji.
