Published:Tuesday | October 14, 2014 | 12:00 AM

FIFTEEN STUDENTS who recently graduated from Russells Primary School, St Elizabeth, and performed well in the Grade Six Achievement Test are to be honoured by the institution this weekend.

The event, which is being coordinated by the past students in association with the Church of the Firstborn of Jamaica, will be held on Sunday at Russells Gospel Hall.

"The past students and the Church of the Firstborn wish to express their gratitude to the principal, Mr Mordant Mitchell, and the staff for setting a great example of how to integrate multiple disciplines to provide the best solutions for the students, thereby achieving so much with so little."

Bursaries will be awarded to the GSAT graduates, and certificates of appreciation will be presented to the staff.

In honour of the late Inez Kong-Cornwall, who served the school for 35 years (nine of which she served as acting principal), The Inez Kong-Cornwall Education Fund will be launched to engage past students, community partners and the private sector, as it seeks to stimulate excellence and raise the educational performance at the Russells Primary School by funding grants and scholarships for students.
