Student achieves her goal of Dux
All the extra effort has paid off for Tokoroa High School Dux Alaa Abbuellif and Proxime accessit Chloe Herman.
It was an emotional time for the high achievers who took away numerous awards throughout Wednesday’s prizegiving.
Egyptian-born Abbuellif said it has always been her goal to get Dux.
For Herman the proxime accessit was unexpected despite her awards in mathematics, Te Manava and Puna Vai Ora.
Herman had to laugh at the amount of times she walked up and down the stage.
However, she was just as proud each time.
