Edward Rounds saved up his pocket allowance mon­ey to buy stationery for his exam.

The Year 11 student won the progressive prize for his stream at the Lomary Secondary School prizegiving ceremony yesterday.

“I always used to save my mon­ey for stationery so that I do not pressure my parents to buy my school things,” he said.

“I used to reduce my parents’ load by handling my school sta­tionery and I am very sure now that my parents must be so proud of me.”

Mr Rounds said that the thing which motivated him was that government made education free.

“There are people out there in the country who do not have ac­cess to education because of fi­nancial problems.

“We are lucky to have TELS so that everyone can study and have a better job.”

He said that his English marks used to be bad but he worked so hard to have good marks to make his parents proud because they sacrificed a lot for his siblings.

“I progressed so much that I got the fourth highest in English and second highest in Geography and History,” he said.

“I used to be below average stu­dent but encouragement from my parents helped me get through.”
