Wow, the girls rocked this year, taking the lion’s share of President’s Medals, with five girls winning gold and silver medals and one boy, Michael Beepath, winning a silver medal.
Six students received their medals from President Anthony Carmona at yesterday’s presentation ceremony for the 2016 Awards of National Scholarships and Awards System (Incentives to Excellence) at the National Academy for the Performing Arts (NAPA), Port-of-Spain. Congratulations to all these young people - and to the parents and teachers. Was so glad to see a student from my old alma mater (St. Joseph's Convent) winning a gold medal!
