The competition was tough for Kavita Kumar of Naleba College but at the end of the year, she claimed the Dux Award, Kavita said.

“This award came as a surprise as I was bit behind with some marks in one of the exams,” she said.

“I feel so much happier as I did not expect to be the recipient of the dux award as I faced many challenges this year, but I believe it was my hard work that has paid off,. One of the many challenges was the use of social media- it distracted me a lot, I took part in sports and was too tired to study at times.”

The 18 year-old said that students should focus on education and make it a top priority.

Proud father, Divendra Kumar said he sacrificed a lot to support his daughter’s education and pushed her through words of encouragement.

“My daughter had worked hard and she deserves this award.

“It was a challenge for her as her three older brothers had set the platform for her, but she did not fail in her duty to succeed.”

Mr Kumar said that parents play an important role in their children’s lives.

“Parents should never neglect their children but give their best to support their children’s education and should never compare a child to another child, instead they should boost their performance through positive reinforcement.

Website launch

For the first time since its establishment in 1972, the school has achieved another remarkable milestone in terms of technology.

“This year we have moved from the olden era to the digital era whereby the Maths/Science and Compute Department worked vigorously with sheer dedication and passion to have the first ever Naleba College Community Website,” Mrs Ali said.

Principal Sainul Ali also said the teachers put in a lot of time and effort to make the school magazine.

“The production of the magazine was more costly. With the community website, it is accessible to students, ex-scholars, parents and whoever wishes to view the updates from the school from 2019 onwards,” she said.
