All the way from Aopo

Dear Editor

Re: Girl from Vaimauga tops 

Again another kid from that little known and drought ridden village of Aopo is making the people who never know where in Samoa this little community is located becoming more curious about why it continues to produce some of the finest and brightest students these days. 

Having said that, in 2015 , a brother and sister whose mother is from this same village scored brilliantly in Science and Commerce subjects and were dux and second to dux students at the Robert Louis college in that year. 

The same siblings collected all the prizes as a result and they continued to flourish academically in the Foundation year at the N.U.S and now on scholarships pursuing degrees in Engineering and Medicine. 

What a challenge for the students in all of Samoa. 

Don’t forget that the hotter the better the sweeter the victory. 

Keep it up and we need more of that Aopo.


Manu, S.o.A
