Head Master, Mr A D Pinheiro said he was very proud of Sharik and that the award recognised the talent, dedication and commitment of both learners and staff.
We asked Sharik to say a few words:
“My names is Sharik Soham Ramjee and I am 16 years old. My favourite subject is Mathematics. I enjoy everything about the subject, and I find all the interesting puzzles that you can solve using it extremely fascinating. I enjoy problem solving and finding solutions for different questions. I am very passionate about Math and have a knack at understanding complex concepts regarding the subject. Even throughout primary school I managed to get the Math award a number of times.
My goal is to become an actuary and I have been working very hard to make this goal a reality. To me it’s not just the numbers that count but the hard work, time and effort you have to put into achieving your goals. I try to be a role model to many people and try to inspire them to achieve their goals and be the best versions of themselves that they can be.”
Congratulations, Sharik! We are enormously proud of you and your achievements.
