Hard work pays off for Mundubbera dux
AMBER Briggs did not expect to be named dux of Mundubbera State School.
But she said it was a welcome surprise.
“It was a bit of a relief to see my hard work paid off,” Amber said.
“I’ve been trying hard in all my subjects.”
The 15-year-old Year 10 student currently studies agriculture, art, English, maths, science and history.
Amber, who won the dux award at the awards night on November 3, was at the top of her cohort in English, agriculture and art.
She moved to Mundubbera State School in Year 7 after starting school at Monogorilby State School.
“I live on a property near there,” she said.
“Though we live in a house in town during the week and live out at property on the weekend.”
Amber will now move to Burnett State College for Year 11 and 12.
“I’ll be studying similar subjects, though focusing on agriculture,” she said.
“I’m a bit nervous as I won't be familiar with the school... but I’m excited about going forward in my studies.”
After Year 12 Amber wants to go to an agriculture college.
HIGH ACHIEVER: Amber Briggs was the Mundubbera State School dux for 2016.
