Awardees announced for the “Saint Peter’s Award” of the 2021/2022 Academic Year
As an encouragement for Primary, Junior and Senior Secondary graduating students from Diocesan schools who have excellent performance in religious subjects and are actively participating in religious activities, for three consecutive years the Diocesan Catholic Education Commission has been issuing the “St. Peter’s Award” since the academic year of 2019/2020, awarding a trophy, a certificate and scholarship to students recommended by their schools. The award is named after St. Peter because he is the foundation of the Roman Catholic Church as the leading Apostle as well as the first Pope, and to whom Jesus has reinstated to feed and take care of His sheep. Catholic schools share this important mission of shepherding young people and cultivating faith in them, showing them the true light of the world.
17 dedicated students are awarded in the 2021/2022 academic year (list of awardees on this webpage), the scholarship and concerned expenses have been sponsored by a group of generous benefactors and fellow catholic donors as a reflection of the communion and union within the Holy Church, their donations also symolise that the nurture of the youth is passed down the line from one generation to another.
