Moving to New Zealand from India two years ago meant Palak had much to get used to in her new country. Not insignificant amongst these things was getting to grips with a new school and the whole NCEA model. However she learned very quickly and received an excellence endorsement for Level 1.
Palak came first in Science and Digital Technology. One of the achievements she is most proud of is taking part in the BP Business Challenge as team leader. She hopes to study for a business degree.
Outside of school she is very involved with her temple and enjoys painting, photography and reading.
