The ACoM’s premier secondary school, Selwyn College, held its prize giving ceremony on 23 October. Hundreds of parents and school supporters turned up to witness and participate in the day’s program.
The dignitaries attending the ceremony included the ACoM Archbishop Most Rt Revd Leonard Dawea; the ACoM General Secretary, Dr Abraham Hauriasi; the ACoM Education Secretary, Dr James Memua; Deputy Permanent Secretary of the Ministry of Education and Human Resources Development, Mr James Manebona and many more Government and Church dignitaries.
In his speech the Archbishop, who is also the chairman of Selwyn College school board, congratulated the school principal, the school administration and teachers for the excellent work they are doing as teachers of the college. He said the result of the teachers’ dedication to their teaching responsibility had shown in the excellent academic performances of most students from Forms 1 to 7.
It is the first time ever since Form 7 was introduced in the college that most of the Form 7 students have achieved the highest scores of A+ both in Science and Arts subjects. This can lead to the award of scholarships to regional and overseas universities to continue their academic journey.
The total number of Form 7 students is 48, 25 of whom were Arts students and were awarded A+ results and 14 were awarded A+ in four different fields of Science subjects.
The School Principal, Rev Davidson Ngwairamo, in his speech also expressed his heartfelt gratitude to teachers for their good work and encouraged them to maintain it.
The program ended with feasting after the presentation of prizes.
