A Solomon Islander, Kristy Nanau, was badged as head girl during the Yat Sen Primary School prefects induction ceremony yesterday.

Her nomination came as a surprise because she had only been through the interview session with teachers for deputy head girl, not the head girl.

“I did not know I was capable of this role, but today I feel more special because the school administration has recognised something in me to be named head girl.”

The 13-year-old came here in 2017 with her parents. Her father is a lecturer at the University of the South Pacific (USP) while her mother is doing her master’s degree.

Although she is ready to take on this important role Kristy is still nervous knowing there will be challenges along the way.

“There will be ups and downs in life, but I am ready to overcome all hurdles,” she said.

“I am ready to support our teachers and students.”

She dedicated this achievement to her parents whom she described as pillars of strength who served as motivation.

“I have to be a good leader and live up to the expectation of school teachers and students,” she said.

Kristy is ready to work along with the head boy and deputy heads of the school.

Her mother, Maria Nanau, was impressed that the school administration had seen her work, but not from where she comes from.

“I was actually shocked when I heard them call my daughter’s name, I expected she will be the prefect, but not the head girl,” she said.

13-year-old David Zhang was inducted as head boy of the school while Willie Ho and Saimoni Loga were inducted as deputy head boys.

Deshika Singh and Lara Hanna were inducted as deputy head girls.

There are 688 students at the school and 34 prefects were inducted yesterday.
