The 6th Excellence Awards are dedicated to the 2014 Top Achievers. This kind of gesture is not coincidental. It has been well planned to reward top students as they complete the three basic levels of education that is primary, junior and senior secondary, before embarking on university or other related institutions. This gesture builds up to rewarding excellence further, by according the top students an opportunity to pursue relevant careers in renowned universities through the Top Achievers’ Programme.
