NASSAU, Bahamas -- The national average remains low, but you wouldn't know it by passing through Custom Computers Ltd. in the Harbour Bay Shopping center this past Saturday, where students, parents and teachers all gathered together to celebrate excellence in education.
The Fifth Annual "A's for Excellence" campaign, hosted by Custom Computers kicked off the new school year for some lucky and hardworking students whose "A" grades on their latest report card made them eligible for a drawing of fun and educational prizes -- such as computers, printers, an iPad, and phones -- sure to help them go above and beyond in their studies.
Speaking before the drawing, Custom Computers Marketing Manager Pia Farmer noted that the event continues to encourage excellence among Bahamian students.
"Although we face many challenges in education, it is important that we celebrate those students who are working hard and excelling in their studies, and to appreciate the teachers who make a big difference in the lives of our children," she says.
"At Custom Computers we would like to bring to the forefront some of the good news and positive stories about children who are succeeding and gaining life skills in school."
