Senator Ming said, “We are excited to celebrate 10 years of honouring future leaders”. She explained; this event started in 2007 and the emphasis is on recognizing two students of leaving age from all St. George’s schools who have such qualities of a leader.

“Specific criteria is set on academics, deportment, kindheartedness and community service. The principals of the schools have the task of identifying one male and female student who display those qualities in the disciplines mentioned.”
