The Half Moon Golf, Tennis and Beach Club has awarded 75 scholarships to students of secondary schools.
The scholarships to children of employees at the hotel included the payment of school fees for 35 students, and the award of 40 book grants. Additionally, Half Moon for the seventh time, awarded a special scholarship to a student of the Edwards Preparatory School in Torado Heights, Montego Bay.
The Half Moon scholarship programme has been in existence since September 1995. This year, as a compliment to the awards, recipients and their parents participated in a workshop entitled, “Being the Best” at the hotel. The workshop imparted study tips and values and attitudes.
The scholarship programme is one of several programmes at the hotel designed to contribute to nation-building and the development of future leaders.
