IT IS the night of the year when all the hard studying, training and determination of Lockyer High students pays off.
And while the final semester is the countdown to the holidays, it's also a time to reflect on the year that's been, with Lockyer District High School rewarding its students at a special awards night.
Senior dux of the school Hannah Herrmann said she was honoured to receive recognition for her efforts.
"It was exciting and actually a surprise because I was up against some really deserving competition,” she said.
"My study regime is quite hectic though, but I do try and take Sundays off.”
Hannah had a message for any other ambitious students out there hoping to one day by named dux of the school.
"Try not to worry about how well others are doing and focus on yourself and your own work,” she said
She hopes to enrol into a bachelor of Politics, Philosophy and Economies at the University of Queensland next year.
