The College has long instituted the conferment of Prizes – Excellence Awards to reinforce excellence and meritocracy and to acknowledge those students who distinguish themselves for their academic performance, ethos and conduct. This year, for the first time, the College has instituted Merit Awards for students who are currently members of our School’s Junior High School 9th and High School 11th grades.
