FOUR needy students who were counted among those to score the highest in the Grade Six Achievement Test (GSAT) earlier this year have been awarded scholarships by Gas Products (Gas Pro) Limited.
The scholarships, valued at $50,000 each, were presented to:
* Shaquan Robinson, the top-performing boy in the GSAT for Windward Road Primary and Junior High;
* Britney Blackwood, the top-performing girl for Windward Road Primary and Junior High;
* Chato Allen, the top-performing boy at Norman Gardens Primary and Junior High School; and
* Shaonah Craig, the top-performing girl at Norman Gardens Primary and Junior High.
At the awards ceremony, held on Tuesday, Gas Pro's chief executive officer Peter Graham, said the students, who all scored above 80 per cent in the exam were worthy of assistance in pursuing secondary education.
All four students, along with their vice-principals and class teachers, were recognised for their efforts at Tuesday's ceremony.
Gas Pro will continue to provide the youngsters with $50,0000 annually for the next five years, but it is contingent on their maintaining a B+ average.
At the start of the new academic year next month, Robinson will attend Campion College while Blackwood will attend Immaculate Conception High. Craig and Allen will attend Camperdown High.
