Sur­prised! That’s how Adi Pe­rina Sau­rara felt when she was named Dux of Lodoni Pri­mary School yes­ter­day.

“I couldn’t be­lieve I got the Award, but I know I have been work­ing re­ally hard for it,” the 13-year-old stu­dent from Dakuinuku Vil­lage in Tailevu said. “I thank the Lord and my teach­ers for their tremen­dous sup­port through­out the year.” Her mother, Lani­eta Kaberekia, 45, said: “I can’t re­ally ex­plain how happy I am right now. I thank the Lord for my daugh­ter’s life and she re­ally de­serves this award.” Mrs Kaberekia said they were badly af­fected by Cyclone Win­ston and were still try­ing to re­cover, yet that did not stop her daugh­ter from get­ting the Dux award. “She has been work­ing re­ally hard “We re­ally did our best in sup­port­ing our daugh­ter and stay­ing in the vil­lage with no work wasn’t easy, but we did some farm­ing, which has been cater­ing for our fam­ily. Mrs Kaberekia also pointed out that her daugh­ter was the first dux award re­cip­i­ent from Dakuinuku Vil­lage. Adi Pe­rina, who as­pires to be­come a doc­tor, will be join­ing St Vin­cent Col­lege in Tailevu. Edited by Naisa Koroi
