A total of 690 pupils and students took part in a preliminary competitive scholarship entrance exam into the Galaxy International School.
The scholarship package ranges between 100 and 25 per cent and has, so far, offered many students the opportunity to be part of the Galaxy family.
The exams are organised annually for primary six students preparing to join the junior high school (JHS) form one or year seven (Y7) and for students in JHS three preparing to start senior high school (SHS) one or year 10 (Y10).
The exams are part of the school’s corporate social responsibility to give an opportunity to brilliant needy students from both public and private schools to have access to the school’s top-notch modernised educational facilities.
Enthusiastic students, excited about the prospect of attending Galaxy, thronged the secondary department at Ashaley Botwe to take part in the examination.
The Principal of the school, Mehmet Akmermer, was elated that so many students deemed it worthwhile to try their hands on the exam.
Galaxy International School is one of the private international schools in the country that offers both the British Curriculum and the West African Senior School Certificate Examination (WASSCE) programme and has student representation from over 30 nations.
The school, which has been operating since 2001, currently has two campuses; a secondary and primary located at Ashaley Botwe and a primary and pre-school at East Legon.
