Under the theme Celebrating Our Achievements, The St. Bartholomew’s Primary School held its annual prize giving ceremony in the school hall, last Thursday afternoon.
From Nursery to Class Four, the students were recognised for their deportment, conduct, kindness, helpfulness, good work, attendance at school, perseverance and determination; academic excellence, noted improvements, participation in Inter-School Christian Fellowship, outstanding art and craft creations and their sporting achievements.
Arguably, the footballers were the toasts of the celebrations. They all received certificates of excellence in football, having finished fourth in the just concluded BICO/NSC Primary Schools Football Tournament. They had advanced to the tournament’s knockout round as runners-up from Zone 7.
In his absence, team captain, Thierry Gale, was awarded the Tremelle Perch Award for Excellence in Sports and Athletics for the second successive year. Gale is currently on tour, in Cleveland, United States, with his club, Pro Shottas. They are participating in an international youth tournament there.
The Tremelle Perch Award for Excellence in Academics and Sports went to Makayla Cox while Jennique Taylor received the award for Excellence in Academics.
The school also used the prize giving ceremony to mount its BMEX exhibit, From Trash To Treasure to allow all its staff and students to view the many items which had been created and displayed.
