IT was a day of triumph for the young and accomplished Varsha Bhavna Singh who walked away with a handful of awards including the 2013 dux award and the most outstanding student prize at the Rishikul Sanatan College graduation ceremony.

Ms Singh, who graduated from Form Seven, said she had never been happier, adding she will remember the day for the rest of her life.

"I feel really excited and overjoyed," Ms Singh said.

"I'd like to thank my parents who have always supported me and my teachers, without whom I wouldn't be here today."

Ms Singh was handed individual prizes for scoring the highest marks in maths, English, chemistry, biology and physics, after which she was also awarded the Form Seven science student of the year award.

Ms Singh also walked away with two laptops, two mobile phones and about $200 cash.

Speaking to the students about their achievements was Minister for Youth and Sports Viliame Naupoto who said it was important to create memories in high school.
