A student’s dedication and hard work comes into fruition at the end of every academic year. 

For Grace Ah Kee, being announced the 2017 Dux of Ah  Mu Academy yesterday during the school’s prize giving ceremony, is a clear indication of her sacrifice and commitment. 

She was joined by her families and friends at the Pesega College Hall to witness and celebrate her achievement. 

Also by her side were her parents Magele Leagiagi Ah Kee and Tofale Paletaoga Ah Kee.

Grace, 13, is from the Village of Vaitele Uta.

Like any parents, yesterday was a proud moment for Grace’s parents, whereas for Grace, it was a humbling experience and a happy moment that she wanted to share with her family.  

“I am very happy that my hard work and commitment throughout this whole year has been paid off. 

“I give glory to our Heavenly Father for his love and guidance throughout my journey,” she said. 

She said she hoped to attend Samoa College next year and also to become a doctor in the future.

Grace scored the second highest marks in Mathematics and Social Science and third highest in Basic Science.

Second to Dux was awarded to Feagaimaleata Tanielu who was placed third for English and Visual Studies and second in Samoan Studies and Health and Physical Education Studies.

Oscar Meredith came third in the Year 8 level. He came second in Basic Science and first in Social Studies.
