Harrison College takes lion’s share


Share post:

Harrison College has walked away with all of this year’s Barbados Scholarships and the lion’s share of Exhibitions.

Students of the Crumpton Street, Bridgetown school copped the 11 Scholarships and 12 of the 18 Exhibitions. Queens College earned three Exhibitions, Barbados Community College (BCC) two and Christ Church Foundation one.

However, Minister of Education Santia Bradshaw said there was always a chance more Scholarship and Exhibition winners could be announced, especially in light of the ongoing review process involving the Caribbean Examinations Council (CXC).

“Whenever we have had this process of announcing Scholarship and Exhibition winners, oftentimes there are results that come back in after this date and we are sometimes forced to go back to Cabinet to recognise additional persons. So it is not unusual we are announcing winners now, but the fact remains that in the course of the next few days and weeks [further] Exhibition and Scholarship winners may join you,” she told the beaming students.
