It was a true celebration at Faleula Primary school as teachers and parents honoured the hard work the students underwent during 2016’s academic year.
Parents looked on with pride but none were prouder than Maletina Niko Amosa and Amosa Malo Ulufaloa’e, the parents of Faleula’s 2016 Dux, Maylynn Amosa.
Aside from being named dux, Maylynn topped every subject except for Samoan studies and was also named the most reliable prefect.
Maylynn was also the only student from Faleula Primary to be accepted in Samoa College.
In her final speech to the school, she thanked all the teachers and parents for all the work and time they invested in her.
“Too all those at this school, keep up the great work,” she said.
“I would like to say thank you to the Principal of my school for all the hard work you have put in throughout the year, I pray that the Lord will shower you with blessings.
“I also thank all the parents of the students. All the time you have invested in your children’s education will not be in vain.”
With her final words to the rest of the students who will continue with Faleula next year, she urged them to never give up.
“To all my fellow students, don’t let up,” Maylynn said.
“Great job this year and I wish you all the best for your future. For those parents that are always supporting their children, stay strong and always build your children up.
“Whatever your parents spend on your children will be returned to you from God.”
And to her fellow graduates, Maylynn said to never give up and that the sky is the limit.
“Those who have graduated today, keep working hard,” she said.
“Be obedient and continue your hard work in your future schooling. Don’t give up no matter what, do your best and you will have a great future.
“You have made it but this is not the end, there is a big future ahead of you so get ready to work hard. Don’t be afraid and keep praying.
“I believe in you all.”
