Ever since she was in Year 4, Pallavi Mani had always wanted to become a doctor.

And yesterday she proved to her parents that she was on her way to achieving that by being announced the dux of the school Ba Sanatan College.

Minister for Health and Medical Services Rosy Akbar officiated at the prizegiving ceremony.

Pallavi’s father, Chandra Mani gave thanks to God for guiding her daughter all these years.

“When she was in Class 4 (Year 4 in Sarava Sanatan Dharam Primary School) it was her dream to become a doctor and we helped her to achieve her goals and I knew that she could manage to do it on her own,” he said.

“At home she always studied every day and after school she comes home, studies has a rest and then studies again, by midnight she’ll sleep and by 5am she will study again.”

Pallavi only managed to say a few words after being overwhelmed at the extent of her achievements.

“I am swelling with pride and honour,” Pallavi said.

 

More awards

Not only did Pallavi scoop the Dux award, she also attained the highest mark in Biology, Chemistry, Physics, Mathematics and English.

She also scored the highest in Biology, 94/100 during the Fiji Year 12 Certificate Examination in 2017.

She also scooped the leadership award for being the school headgirl, first place in her form for this year’s annual examination and scoring the highest in Biology, Chemistry, Physics and Mathematics for the Year 12 external examinations last year.

Ms Akbar said: “There is one thing that we should never forget and that is the respect for others.

“Respect your parents first and of course that is the same respect you give to your teachers and we hear of incidents where children don’t respect their teachers and that is probable a norm in the society now.”

She told the students to choose a path that would lead them to success.

She also urged the students to be cautious of their health and watch what they ate.
