A mother’s letters which had words of motivation put a student on track, which eventually saw him take the dux award.

Pita Lomani of Lomary Second­ary School was caught up with peer pressure that he fell behind in his revision for some time.

But his mother’s constant push to keep him on track paid off after he won the top award during the school prizegiving yesterday.

“I got too involved in peer pressure that I forgot to study and that’s when my mother used to give me words of motivation, which encouraged me to study,” the 18-year-old said.

Pita is from Culanuku, Serua. He stays with a teacher near school so that he can attend school every day.

“One thing I always keep in mind is that I have to study hard to make my parents proud because they sent me to stay away from them with all the trust that I will do the right things and will not disappoint them,” he said.

Pita received the prize for scoring the highest in all subjects, except for English.

“I also took agriculture, chemistry, biology, English and Maths so I am planning to enter medicine, but I like doing Maths also so it ends up with me making a tough decision.

“My mum used to wish me luck every day by writing me a note and gives it to a friend to pass it on to me,” he said.
