This one’s for you both mum and dad!

These were the remarks made by Nadroga Arya College head boy Shivneel Kumar for his late parents.

“I just wished they were present to witness my leadership,” he said.

He lost his father due to illness while he was in primary school. His mother became bedridden in 1998 and died in 2018 after suffering from kidney failure.

Since then he has lived with his 25-year-old older brother, who is the lone breadwinner at their home at Batiri, Nadroga.

“There has been a lot of support rendered by my brother and family members. But I do miss my parents,” he said.

He scored 357/400 in the Year 12 Certificate Examination and he aims to become a civil engineer.

Meanwhile, head girl Sera Roiroi said she thanked the college’s management for having faith in her.

“It was my dream to be the head girl. This is a great platform to exercise what has been bestowed on us by the teachers,” she said.

She scored 304 out of 400 in her Year 12 Certificate Examination and wishes to pursue a career in nursing next year.

“I love to look after people’s needs,” she said.

Sera and Shivneel will be assisted by deputy head boy Akinesh Kumar, deputy head girl Manshika Chand, assistant head boy Mithran Gounder and assistant head girl Keresi Vasikali.
