The Administrator General's Department (AGD) has provided school supplies to 59 students for the upcoming academic year.

The students, who were being rewarded for excellent performance in the Grade Six Achievement Test, the Caribbean Secondary Education Certificate, and the Caribbean Advanced Proficiency Examination, received notebooks, pens, pencils, rulers, erasers, and flash drives.

Forty-six of the recipients are beneficiaries of estates being administered by the AGD, while the remaining 13 are children of staff members.

They also received certificates for outstanding performance in their examinations.

At the presentation ceremony held on Monday at the AGD's downtown Kingston offices, Administrator General Lona Brown extended congratulations to the awardees on their success in the respective examinations.

"I am sure at this time that there is a great sense of anticipation and much youthful enthusiasm. For those moving on to high school, there is no limit to the excitement you feel. The road taken to get there may not have been easy ... and I commend you for having completed the task successfully," Brown said.

The administrator general urged the students to continue to work hard as they pursue higher education.
