For the past seven years Ra­nee­sha Chan­dra has won a prize for com­ing first in the ex­am­i­na­tions.

This year, the Year 8 stu­dent of Si­ga­toka Methodist Pri­mary School was over­joyed when she was named school Dux. This was her dream come true. “Thank you God. I am so lucky to have my dream come true and make my par­ents proud,” were the words of Ra­nee­sha. “I thank my mum and dad for al­ways be­ing there for me and pro­vid­ing me with all the needs for my stud­ies. “I would also like to thank all my teach­ers that have taught me dur­ing the years, es­pe­cially my Year Eight teacher who have all guided and en­cour­aged me to in achiev­ing my goals.” Ra­nee­sha scooped six other awards with tro­phies and cer­tifi­cates namely – first in class, high­est mark in maths, high­est mark in English, high­est mark in school for Year Seven exam 2015, best 2016 se­nior or­a­tor, and the 2016 Dux award. A week ear­lier she was pre­sented with a cer­tifi­cate of ex­cel­lence award and medal by the Fiji Math­e­mat­ics As­so­ci­a­tion for ex­cel­lent per­for­mance in Year 7 cat­e­gory for 2015. She had also scored the high­est mark in the 2016 Fiji Eight Year Ex­am­i­na­tion in the school, with a 100/100 in ba­sic sci­ence and 98/100 in maths. Ra­nee­sha’s par­ents, Rakesh and Ruk­shana Chan­dra, are se­nior man­agers at the Tap­poo Group’s head of­fice in Si­ga­toka and de­spite their busy work sched­ules, both have been highly com­mended by the teach­ers of Si­ga­toka Methodist Pri­mary for the sup­port and co­op­er­a­tion pro­vided to­wards Ra­nee­sha’s stud­ies dur­ing the last eight years. “We are blessed to have such a bright and hard­work­ing daugh­ter Ra­nee­sha in our life,” said Mr Chan­dra. “With com­pe­ti­tion be­ing tough at school, her achieve­ment wasn’t au­to­matic but through her hard work and ded­i­ca­tion all the year round where she brushed aside movies, TV pro­grammes, and other leisure ac­tiv­i­ties for her re­vi­sions.” Ra­nee­sha’s grand­par­ents also ar­rived from Ba to see her fin­ish off her pri­mary school days on a high note.
