Thejasenuo Zumu from Government Higher Secondary School Kojima (GHHS) bagged the first DPDB Kohima award, 2009 for securing the first rank student in the 10th standard public examination for the academic year 2008-09 among Government schools from the state. Thejasenuo Zumu, daughter of Duolhouzhu Zumu of Tuophema village, a peon in NCC , was awarded with a certificate and cash Rs.10,000 by MLA 9th Kohima and Chairman DPDB, Kohima Dr. Nicky Kire on Monday at a simple felicitation program. Passing all subjects with ‘A’Grade, Thejasenuo aims to become a teacher and had taken admission in Kohima College and acknowledged almighty God, her teachers and parents and well wishers for her success. Dr. Nicky Kire while speaking on the occassion said that it was for the first time that DPDB was giving out the award to give encouragement to government schools in the district and lauded Thejansenuo for setting a good example to all government school students. GHSSK headmistress C. Zuponi Lotha, thanked the DPDB for organizing the felicitation programme and her student for brining laurels to the school, district and the state. She said that the award would certainly challenge and encourage the government to do better in the years to come. Congratulating Thejasenuo’s achievement, DC Kohima Sachopra Vero said that the GHSSK is the oldest government school in Kohima and could produce candidates, who could secure A Grade and also the highest marks among the students in the government school in the state. He also said that teachers in government school are more qualified and requested the teachers to pay special attention to their students so that they could manage to pass and also do better in exams. Meanwhile, suggestions were also made that the government school with best result also be awarded in the near future. The DPDB Kohima award came about after the DPDB last year reviewed the performance of government schools in the district, which indicated that the schools were faring poorly in the HSLC exam and the DPBB took the decision to award the best student from government schools getting the highest aggregate marks in the HSLC examinations.
