PANAJI: Dempo Sports Club’s residential academy boys have notched up 100 per cent results at the SSC Exams once again, announced the club on Tuesday evening.
From the 15 Residential Academy trainees that were eligible for the SSC Examinations this year, the club has managed to score 4 Distinctions, 6 First Class and 5 Second Class results. The last academic year of 2019-20, had witnessed 5 Second Class, 4 First Class & 1 Distinction.
Appreciating the work that has gone within the organisation and all its stakeholders, the Club would like to extend a warm hug to the staff at Fr. Agnel High School – Pilar & Rekha D’Silva, both of whom have had huge roles to play in the achievement of these results, said the club statement.
About the achievement, Shrinivas Dempo, Chairman of the Dempo Group, said: “In a year on unprecedented hardship, where the boys have not been able to shine on the ground due to the Covid-19 pandemic restricting football activity in the state, I am overwhelmed with the continuous dedication they have shown and the work ethic they have managed to carry from the ground into their classrooms, bringing glory to their family & the Dempo name. In a special way, I would like to congratulate the teachers, who have had a particularly tough time in the last few months and extend my thanks for the work they continue to do for our children.”
