The Ministry of Education will host the 2016 National Awards Ceremony today, to recognize and celebrate the outstanding achievements of a number of students.
During the ceremony, students will be recognised for their performances in the 2015 Primary and Secondary Exit Exams.
The top 10 performers, assessed under the CPEA model last year, will receive awards, as well as students who gained 11 or more CSEC subjects, the top performers in the various subject areas and the overall CSEC performer.
FLOW will also offer a special award to the most outstanding student after remediation.
In addition to these individual awards, a few schools will be recognized – the school with the best CSEC results after remediation, the school with the most improved results and the school with the best results overall.
Prime Minister Gonsalves will deliver the feature address at today’s ceremony.
The event takes place at the Methodist Church Hall in Kingstown, beginning at 1:30 p.m. It will be broadcast live on NBC Radio.
