Students who received the highest mark in their respective classes were presented with a certificate of distinction by Mr. Galea, ESL Department Head, Mr. Rambarran, Principal, and Mr. Putt, Head of Senior School.

Students were thrilled to have their hard work acknowledged and thanked their teachers for providing constant support and encouragement. They also shared their secret to success in hopes of inspiring and motivating their peers to persevere through learning challenges and difficulties.
