The Mid Year Captain

The Mid Year examination results was finally held today parents in the hundreds turned up to this occasion. Parents had the chance to talk to teachers about the performances of their children and also pick up their mid year reports. It was evident that both staff and students needs to work harder in accomplishing a successful goal by the end of the year.

Form 5 students will sit the Tonga School Certificate and this is the equivalent of New Zealand’s NCEA level 1. The Form Six Students will sit the Tonga National Form 6 Certificate and the Form 7 Students will sit the Tonga National Form 7 Certificate which is the equivalent of the New Zealand’s NCEA level 3. It is however an obstacle for the Form 7 Students of which they will have to pass at least 3 of their subjects at an average of B.

Viliami Mafi of Kolomotu’a is the son of Paini and Fou Mafi now residing in Sia’atoutai with Rev Penisimani Mone (Sia’atoutai College Lecturer) who took out the ceremony with just less than a half of a point from the runner up Ika Tu’ipulotu. Ika is the younger brother of ‘Isileli Tu’ipulotu who was the college dux in the year 2010. Ika is hoping to follow his brothers footsteps but Viliami is holding on and his hope the rope will not break.

Penisimani Fonua and Ha’ano Fonua are brothers, took out the honorary first place for both form 6 and 5 respectively. Their proud dad Rev Samiu Fonua was present on the ceremony and so supports the academic endeavours of his sons.

The academic future of this college is still looks brighter and no hope is diminished yet. The secret recipe is English and every Tupou College is able to read and comprehend what they are reading than I am sure the academic records for Tupou College will boost high.

Congratulations to all winners of the Mid Year Examination. In my book it is not about winning the first or second positions, it is all about giving it your all and let God do the rest as he guides you to the future that lies ahead.
