Prime Minister Allen Chastanet says he was impressed with the national academic performances of this year’s Common Entrance students, despite the disruption to the education system due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Writing on his official Facebook page on Sunday, Chastanet made special mention of students from his constituency of Micoud South.
“On Friday afternoon, we took the opportunity to celebrate and award the top 20 students from within the constituency of Micoud South, for their exemplary performances at the 2020 Common Entrance Exams,” he disclosed.
According to the PM, their prizes included tablets, laptops, face masks and other goodies.
“I also took the opportunity to present the principals of schools in the constituency with COVID-19 protocol supplies to support their operations such as thermometers, hand sanitizer and masks, along with lunch-kits and school bags for students who may be lacking these essential school accessories,” he said.
“Congratulations once again students. You have worked hard and your efforts have paid off. Keep striving, stay focused and keep making your community, your parents, teachers and country proud!” Chastanet concluded.
