Saint Teresa Primary school head boy Arnav Kumar is looking forward to leading the school body that elected him for his new role.

The Ba-based school has a school roll of 600 students.

Arnav was inducted along with 74 other school prefects through a voting system devised by the school administration that came into effect last year.

“I feel happy and honored because I was not expecting this, but I will do my best,” he said.

“I hope to set a good example and be a good role model for the other students.”

Proud mother Shalini Kumar said her son initially opted for the role of deputy head boy

“But when he came back with the news that he was chosen as the head boy it was unbelievable,” she said.

“The election happened last year before school ended so students who were nominated had to run their own campaigns.”

Mrs Kumar said her son was the eldest of two in the family and his achievement was well deserved.

“He works hard and includes himself in all school activities so I have no doubt he will fulfill his role as the head boy of the school,” she said.

School head girl Andrea Chanel was also proud of her achievement.

“ I feel excited and happy. I will work hard to show my gratitude of being elected the head girl,” she said.

Her mother Rangeeta Chanel, said she and her husband Jerome Chanel hoped their daughter’s achievement would mould her to be a good leader in the future.

“When she told us the news last year we were happy with how far she has come because we always advised her to work hard and be a good role model to the other students. We know she will do her best,” she said.
