Natabua High School star student, Avinash Avikash Chand, says the sacrifices made by his mother over the years to provide for him was his source of inspiration in school.

Avinash, 17, said his mother, a solo parent, deserved to win praises for his achievement in last year’s Fiji Year 12 Examination where he scored 383 out of 400.

Now in Year 13, Avinash, who resides in Delai Tomuka, Lautoka, scored 84 marks in English, 99 in Biology and Chemistry and 100 in Maths and Physics.

Avinash thanked his mother for encouraging him in his journey, despite the difficulties faced during the COVID-19 pandemic.

“My mum is a single parent and is self-employed selling savouries like bara and bhajia, and she’s been doing it for the past 17 years so I’m really inspired because she was doing so much for us for so many years. I dedicate this achievement to her,” he said.

Avinash said students also needed to put in the effort to achieve good results.

The Lautoka top student also thanked his subject teachers for helping him in his studies.

Avinash said when COVID-19 hit and they were on a school break for three months, his teachers helped them get back on track in a short time.

“I think the results that I have achieved are not only because of my hard work but also that of my subject teachers who also put in a lot of effort to help us because there was only a short period of time to prepare for the final exams.”

Avinash plans to continue pursuing his studies in Science in the future after completing his Year 13 studies.
