Reward for hard work

Mere Naleba
Saturday, November 24, 2012

HARD work and determination is the key to success.

This is the message that Lelean Memorial School dux Seremaia Tuinabunawa gave to students of the school during their prize-giving ceremony yesterday.

Tuinabunawa collected the geography and history prizes and also the most disciplined student award in the arts category.

The student from Vatoa Village in Tailevu was emotional after the prize-giving ceremony and dedicated his collection of trophies to his mother Atelaite Kata, who died when he was only five-years-old.

"I have been raised by my father ever since my mother passed away, and this is a wonderful achievement for me. I know my mother is happy with what I have achieved today," Tuinabunawa said.

The seventh former would like to become a linguistics teacher when he grows up and believes the awards he collected yesterday are a clear indication he is on the right path.
