Eleven children whose parents work at GTT have been awarded bursaries by the company for their exceptional performance at the National Grade Six Assessment Examinations.
GTT’s Director of Employer Experience, Damsel Thompson-Brown said it is an honour for the company to give back to its employees and their children.
She encouraged the students to continue to do their best to maintain good grades.
“Formal education is important; however, an individual with a skill or a trade has options and becomes even more marketable,” Thompson-Brown said.
The students all received a cheque from the company, with the top two performers being each awarded with an HD Fire 10 kindle.
The Awardees include Javon Azore, Walton Alleyne, Shaneah Seabra, Jashaun Garrett, Christian Greaves, Tayla Hartley, Jaeden Douglas, Akeelah Davidson, Nolan Farley, Cayla Richards, and Tashaunsia Alder.
According to Thompson-Brown, once the students’ upkeep a pass rate of 65 percent at the end of the school term, they will continue to benefit from the company’s bursary award programme.
