  • In addition to our bursaries, we present two graduating students with a $1,500 certificate to our local computer shop. They can purchase a laptop, programs etc. that they need for their post secondary education. We run a promotion called “Play for A’s.” Any mark of 90 or more for each semester the student receives allows them a ballot for the draw. It is a great incentive to keep marks up with a possibility of winning the certificate. One of our employees presents the certificate on graduation night to the winning recipient.
