Minister of Education, Science and Technology the Hon. Jerome Fitzgerald told award honourees at the 2015 BJC and BGCSE National Awards Presentation Ceremony that they have shown they were willing to make sacrifices and organise their activities to allow time for them to complete their studies with optimum results.
Several Abaco students were among the top primary school children recognized at the Nineteenth Annual Bahamas Primary School Student of the Year Awards Ceremony in New Providence on May 22 and 23 at Golden Gates World Outreach Ministries where the best and brightest in The Bahamas were honoured.
Six Grade 6 students from Abaco schools won a total of $12,000 in high school scholarship money at the Bahamas Primary School Student of the Year Foundation's annual awards ceremony in Nassau recently. Every primary school in the Bahamas is invited to enter their top Grade 6 student in this competition each year. Students must not only excel in grade point average but leadership, church activities, community service, sports and extracurricular activities as well.
