Grace Spencer says being awarded dux of Hurunui College is an awesome way to finish the year.
Grace, who is thrilled with the honour, excelled in all areas of schooling, reaching for excellence in all subjects. Grace is a popular student who is well-known for her personality, her willingness to do her best, and her strong faith.
In the coming year, she plans to fly to Guatemala for a two-month stay, where she will be helping a missionary couple and doing maintenance around their campsite, as well as other activities.
Her basic knowledge of Spanish will be put to good use during this time.
When she returns she will join her Dad doing farm work before she joins another mission group to go to Fiji for three weeks in June.
In 2020, Grace hopes to study for a Bachelor of Medical Imaging at Ara, and later become a radiographer.
