Sharing in the moment are Sharon Burnett (fourth left) deputy director, Overseas Examinations Commission, Nadine Malloy (second right), principal, Ardenne High School, and Thalia Lyn (right), chairman, NCB Foundation.
The occasion marked NCB's symbolic $9.5m cheque handover to the Overseas Examination Commission, which represents payment of CXC/CSEC Principles of Accounts and Principles of Business examination fees for students sitting these subjects islandwide.
Ardenne High School was chosen to represent the more than 100 schools that had benefited from the programme as they had the second-highest number of student entries of 138, while The Hampton School entered 142 students.
