This year’s top students have been rewarded for their performances in the Common Entrance Exam.
Zachary Gill and Gabriel Muhajiri of St. Gabriel’s School and Adia Deane and Tori Mayers from St. Angela’s School have each received a laptop with sleeve and printer, in addition to Chefette vouchers and promotional items. Adia has gained entry in Harrison College while Zachary, Gabriel and Tori will be attending Queen’s College.
The local fast-food chain has also rewarded the children of Chefette employees who received the highest marks in the exam. Jahfere Wilson, who is the son of Semone Wilson, a cook at Chefette Warrens, is headed to Queen’s College, while Tre Thorington, son of Natalie Rochester, hostess at Chefette Heroes Square, will be attending The Alexandra School.
“We, acknowledging the huge commitment & sacrifices made by kids, parents and teachers for the 11+ Exam and as part of our corporate social responsibility, wish to reward those top performers who would have excelled,” said Chefette’s Managing Director Ryan Haloute.
Tori’s mother, Wanda Mayers, spoke on behalf of the parents saying, “we are extremely pleased that Chefette has continued to show their commitment to the youth of Barbados by rewarding positive behaviour and achievement.
“Tori set herself goals and worked hard to achieve her success. All of the children have worked hard and are deserving of recognition and we are grateful to Chefette for honouring them.”
