    Congratulations to all winners, make sure and do Bermuda proud. Not just pass but get As and Bs.

    To PHC, what happen to Bermuda College, no award winners for BC?

    Bermuda we must invest in our local college also as it is a great start for many students who cannot afford to go abroad.

  6. Foolishness says:

    Obviously no applicants for BDA college maybe? The PHC foundation has and will support any BDA College attendee.
