CLASS IN SESSION: All systems go for new school year + Sagicor Life awards standout GSAT scholars

WHIZ KIDS: Reinforcing its commitment towards the advancement of education in Jamaica, Sagicor Life Jamaica recently awarded scholarships (valued at $125,000) to 16 Jamaican students for the duration of their secondary schooling. These GSAT scholars include four boys and 12 girls. “Sagicor Life is committed to assisting with the development of Jamaica’s youngest and brightest minds,” said R. Danny Williams, Chairman of Sagicor Life, “so that they can go on to impact our society in positive and significant ways.”

FRESH START: Except for a few schools in St. Thomas that were affected by Hurricane Sandy last year, says Education minister Ronald Thwaites, it’s all systems go for the 2013/14 academic year. “We have asked schools to tell us if they are having difficulties, and we know of a few with issues that we taking care of,” Thwaites said. “The remainder, we are assuming, are taking care of their needs with the assistance of regional offices.”
