The ceremony was made even more special with the presence of the Chief Guest of Honour, Shri Krishna Kapri, Joint Secretary and Head of HE division, Ministry of Education, Science and Technology, Government of Nepal and the Special Guest, Ms Melanie Barlow, British Deputy Ambassador to Nepal, British Embassy.
Arun Rajamani, Managing Director, South Asia, Cambridge University Press & Assessment, said, “The Outstanding Cambridge Learner Awards recognise and celebrate exceptional academic achievements by high-performing scholars in Cambridge examinations around the world. Year after year, innumerable learners from Nepal have been conferred these awards basis their outstanding performance across STEM and non-STEM subjects. With 47 students winning accolades this year, too, has been no exception. The results reflect the enormous talent in Nepal , not only among young learners but also within the teaching profession. I want to take this opportunity to congratulate these winners, their proud teachers, and their parents for their endless support that helped guide these young achievers in their remarkable journey to success.”
Maxim Raimann, Exams Director & General Manager, British Council Nepal added: “The sheer breadth of subjects in which these students have excelled makes me so very optimistic for the future of Nepal. Today we recognise the successes of these young people but we must also urge them to see this as just one step in a continuous path of lifelong learning. I wish them well on this journey and hope that they will be able to celebrate many more such milestones in the years to come.”
Congratulations to all the winners and keep shining bright.
