THE phrase success comes to those who work hard and have a positive mind has been a source of inspiration for a group of students.

Eight students of Yat Sen Secondary school, finally reaped the fruit of hard work after they were offered a five-year scholarship to pursue a career of their choice in China.

Political counsellor at the Embassy of the People's Republic of China in Fiji Yang Zhaohui said the scholarship was for the local Fijian students only.

He said they had given out 24 scholarships to students from various schools this year. Mr Zhaohui said the scholarship was given to students based on their academic performance.

"The eight students will have to spend a year learning the Chinese language and culture and spend the other four years studying their majors."
