Police officers’ children who excelled in academics rewarded with bursaries
“The heights by great men reached and kept were not achieved by sudden flight, but they, while their companions slept, were toiling upward in the night.” These were the sentiments of acting Police Commissioner, Nigel Hoppie at the Guyana Police Force’s bursary awards ceremony on Friday.
The ceremony was held at Police Headquarters, Eve Leary, Georgetown, and recognised the achievements of children of Police ranks who have been successful at the recently concluded National Grade Six Assessment examinations (NGSA).
Those who were awarded were Ryan Craigen, Aliekay Joseph, Naomi Griffith, Avish Ganesh, Keiora Mc Kenzie, Delisa Campbell, Deniro Jones, Jaryl Alonzo, Atisha Belfield, Lamar Nestor and Thalia Sobers.
The awards were presented by the Top Cop, who congratulated the recipients and their parents for their achievements and urged the awardees to continue to strive for excellence as they continue on their academic journey.
The Commissioner further encouraged the awardees to strive to achieve academic and physical balance through their school life and even afterwards.
The vote of thanks was moved by one of the recipients, Ryan Craigen, who first thanked God for the group’s success and then their parents for the sacrifices made and the support given throughout their preparation for the examinations and long before.
Craigen closed off by committing to work even harder.
