HI-SCI: Bradley tops physical science in KZN

2010-01-08 00:00

WHEN Durban pupil Bradley Naidoo heard that he was KwaZulu-Natal’s top achiever for Physical Science, he almost fell out of bed.

The Kharwastan Secondary pupil, who achieved eight distinctions, was awarded a prize for being the province’s top Physical Science pupil at a special awards function at the Inkosi Albert Luthuli International Convention Centre in Durban yesterday.

“My principal called me at six in the morning to tell me to be at the function. I almost fell off my bed when I heard that I was getting an award,” he said.

Bradley was only told at the function that he was getting the award for being the province’s top Physical Science pupil.

“I was elated when I heard my name … It still needs to sink in,” he said.

He said his love for problem-solving helped him excel at Physical Science.

“I liked the subject because you have to apply your mind,” he said.

He said the revision and going through past years’ papers helped him do well at school.

The ardent Liverpool supporter said he played soccer to relax when the studying got too much for him.

“It was hard work. There were lots of late nights and early mornings where I would buckle down and study. That’s over now, it’s time to party.”

Bradley received a laptop and a set of encyclopaedia as part of his award.

He intends studying medicine at the Nelson R. Mandela School of Medicine and hopes to specialise in neurosurgery.
