Queen Victoria School dux Lorima Magitirauvula has plans to fly.

The 2019 recipient of the school’s most prestigious award, wants to become a pilot. The 18-year-old said he had pushed himself to achieve the award

“My aim was not the award but to excel in studies,” he said.

“My family is my motivation. My father and mother have always urged me to study.”

The Naitasiri lad was flanked by his family members after the awards ceremony.

Grandfather and namesake was teary eyed and was naturally proud of his grandson.

“I am so happy today. I know my grandson is capable of doing great things. I know his future is going to be bright,” he said.

Mother Laniete Magitirauvula said her son was always a good student.

“We don’t really have to push him to study. It is something that he likes to do,” she said.

The family is planning a big Sunday meal for the young man’s achievement.

Lorima was also given the academic award in Technical Drawing. A total of 50 awards were given to students yesterday at the QVS annual prize giving.

The Principal’s Award was awarded to Manasa Vilikesa and Semi Tauyavuca was the best all rounder.
