On Monday the school received the prizes won during the competition from furniture and appliance store Courts St Vincent Limited, in a short ceremony at the school compound.

Competition organizer Joel Jack commended the boys and their school for their achievement.

“The bible quiz has been in existence for six years, and for the five years we have had this award for outstanding school, this is the third year the Grammar School is taking it, and I would certainly like to congratulate them and all the students present and past who were instrumental in helping their school to achieve this award,” Jack said.

He also thanked Courts for its contribution over the years and urged other sponsors to come on board, as the competition encourages young people to read the Bible and give heed to the word of God.

Alexis John, Courts senior marketing executive in handing over the items, which include two kettles, a colour printer and cash, also congratulated the young men as he encouraged them to continue on the religious path and their studies.

“Courts is extremely happy to be a part of this competition over the years,” John said.

“It is a competition that is geared towards building character; in this time when there are so many negative influences we know that studying the word of God can transform your life.”

Acting Headmaster Curtis King accepted the prizes on behalf of the school.

King shared his appreciation to the students, organizers of the competition, and Courts, and said that winning the award on numerous occasions shows that the students at the school are well rounded individuals

“These competitions provide us with the opportunities to show the students that they are all round students,” King said.

So I am very happy that the Grammar School has won and has won three times out of five and I really wish them well, and hope that they will continue to excel in this competition,” he added.
