High achievers at Ferncourt High School in St Ann were recognised for their hard work at last week's celebration of Children's Day.

Several students in the Principal's Distinction Club, and on the school's honour roll were pinned with badges of honour at a special awards ceremony. Those who have represented the school in external competitions were also recognised as ambassadors for the institution.

Director Principal of the HEART College of Hospitality Services Dr Janet Dyer encouraged the students to resist peer pressure and to set high personal standards.

"You hold the keys to your success... Do not try to be a part of the ordinary group, be extraordinary," she encouraged the students as she addressed them at the special ceremony.

The students were also encouraged by their principal Reverend Lenworth Sterling to be role models and agents of change.

Rev Sterling also used the awards ceremony held under the theme, " Honouring what is right about Ferncourt" to highlight some of the plans for the school.

He announced that all students will be required to sit an exit exam and also that the school has plans to increase pass rates in Mathematics and English in keeping with standards set by the Ministry of Education.

Also significant, is the announcement that Ferncourt will be rolling out a six form programme for the new school year.
