100 PEP students gets awards from Golding!

Mark Golding, the Leader of the Opposition, on Thursday, has awarded 100 students for their outstanding performance in the Primary Exit Profile examinations (PEP), all from the region of his St Andrew Southern constituency.

This is a continued programme that the former Member of Parliament Dr Omar Davies begun back in 2000.

Golding says the award is a grant towards first year secondary school tuition fees and general school fees.

He says there are three different levels of award, depending on the students grades. Golding stated that help and good support for the project was from a network of private sector and corporate donors.

He also expressed that with back to school preparation being more expensive, being able to assist parents with the grants made him happy.
