Prizes set students up for the future
Ambitions were fulfilled at the Forest View High School prizegiving, as Leonie Nugroho won dux and Rachel Durie claimed proxime.
Head girl Nugroho and Durie had always set their sights on the top spots.
‘‘ We’ve always strived to achieve at a high level,’’ 17-yearold Nugroho said.
The two friends received numerous awards at last week’s prizegiving.
Nugroho received two scholarships and Durie won three.
Their success topped off their five- year high school career, which will launch them into a bright future.
Durie will attend university next year to study a four-year bachelor of agricultural science.
And while she has no idea of her career path, she is confident it will be clear after her degree.
‘‘I’m definitely passionate about agriculture and there is always new jobs being created.’’
Nugroho has decided she would be a teacher next year in a volunteer programme.
She will travel to China in March to be an assistant English teacher.
‘‘What I want to achieve is personal growth and to help the global community.’’
