Banks DIH Limted presented bursaries to 24 children of its employees and shareholders who were successful at this year’s National Grade Six Assessment.
At a presentation ceremony held Saturday at Banks DIH Sports Club, Thirst Park, George McDonald, Co-Managing Director/ Market-ing Director encouraged the students to capitalise on the educational opportunities available to them.
“Whatever you plan to do in this life, you need a good education.
You have an excellent start thanks to your parents and teachers and you must
not let them down- make use of the opportunities,” he told the awardees.
McDonald also said that Banks DIH Limited is growing at a fast rate and it will need young people with ability to take it forward.
