GCSE students congratulated

Students from the Grammar School in Guernsey were congratulated by Managing Director of Blue Islands, Rob Veron, as he presented their GCSE certificates. Mr Veron was invited back to the school to present the students with their awards and offered a few motivating words to help them as they further their education or embark on employment.

Mr Veron congratulated the students and spoke of the importance of working hard to achieve great goals, setting aspirations high and making the most of mentors encountered along the way. 'I was honoured to be invited back to the Grammar School to present the awards. What the students have achieved this year is phenomenal.'

Jeff Smith, Head teacher of the Grammar School and Sixth Form Centre, invited Mr Veron to the school. 'Our VIP guest Rob Veron came to the sixth form from La Mare De Carteret High School. We invited Rob to the school because we knew he would be an inspiration to our students. Rob is a 32-year-old Managing Director of an airline, impressive by any standards. After hearing him speak, the students were in no doubt that his success was due to his high aspirations and target-orientated mindset. It was a pleasure to have Rob as our guest speaker.'

The school had seen the best set of GCSE results ever and special merits were given to over 40 students who received impressive standards of eight or more A*/A GCSE grades. Two students achieved 11 A* grades.
