Coconut Bay Beach Resort and Spa today issued bursary cheques to three staff members to assist in covering the education cost of their children who will be entering Secondary School in September of this year. The disbursement is part of an inaugural annual Common Entrance Scholarship Program spearheaded by the hotel’s Sports and Social Committee.
This year’s beneficiaries are drawn from the Bars, Stewarding and Restaurant Departments. Two of the scholarship awards were granted on the basis of the highest grades among children of staff members, while the third was determined based on need. In the case of the highest grades, these were recorded as: 92.67 and 91 percent respectively.
The scholarship recipients will be attending the Choiseul Secondary School, Clendon Mason Secondary and St Joseph Convent. The Common Entrance Scholarship Program is part the hotel’s continuing effort to nurture and facilitate staff as they strive for economic, social and personal development. Hotel Manager, Mark Hawken in commenting on the scholarship award stated: “At Coconut Bay we are always interested in the welfare of our staff”. “Their ability to excel and succeed can only bring about stability which is to our mutual benefit”. We extend best wishes to the recipients of this first Common Entrance Scholarship Award in their educational results”.
