25 August 2017
Students and former students of Prince Andrew School (PAS) today, Friday 25 August 2017, received their much anticipated GCSE and A-Level exam results.
Their official Statement of Results were issued to them in a short presentation held in PAS’s Lecture Theatre. In attendance were parents, teachers, and representatives from many Island employers including the private sector.
Head Teacher of PAS, Penny Bowers, was pleased with the turnout and praised the efforts of the parents that took the time to attend the presentation. She spoke about the significance of obtaining good results now and the important next stage for the students, whether it be employment or furthering their education.
Certificates were also presented to students who had taken the opportunity of embarking on work experience.
Work Development Coordinator for the Education & Employment Directorate, Cynthia Bennett, said:
“Every year I stand here and try to emphasise to everyone just how important these work experience programmes are. The reality is that as our economic environment becomes more challenging and competitive, the greater this importance becomes. Once again I have been overwhelmed by the way the students have gone out there and applied themselves in the workplace.”
Following the presentations, students were given the opportunity to speak to Island employers including Solomon & Company (St Helena) Plc and Sure South Atlantic Ltd. Students also took the opportunity to seek career advice from their teachers.
