Fourteen-year-old, Tarusila Ranadi Sito stands proud after she scooped all five subject awards at Ratu Rusiate Nabuta Memorial School in Nailaga Village, Ba.

The youngster star was named dux of the school for 2020. She is currently a Year 9 student at Jasper Williams High School in Lautoka.

It was unfortunate that due to last year’s national COVID-19 pandemic restrictions, no school awards ceremony was held, but earlier this month, she was grateful to have her awards dropped off at her humble home.

Tarusila, who was also the head girl of the school achieved 96 marks in English, 97 marks in Health Science, 96 marks in Fijian, 93 marks in Mathematics and 92 marks in Basic Science.

Despite her family going through many difficulties when the pandemic hit last year, she still followed her dream until the end.

Tarusila is also the first child in her family to succeed at primary school level.

“I feel grateful and very happy because it wouldn’t have been possible without the support of my parents and teachers,” she said.

“My parents were not working when the pandemic hit but I saw how they struggled to make sure that I got a proper education and they also encouraged me to get excellent marks in school, I worked hard for that.”

She plans to further accomplish her goals to give back to her family for all their hard work towards her education.
