Post Office comp winners

The Bermuda Post Office has selected the winners of their Essay Competition.

Four schools agreed to participate with the winners being: Ciboney Swan, Zayde Smith, Jaden Kowalchuk, Jamin Fubler, Yukia Hall, Yasmine Tull, Xienne Burch, Ken Kelly, Ahyma Peets, Rakshana Sureshkumar and Jaiquan Outerbridge.

The main theme of the competition was ‘How To Make the Post Office More Relevant To Young People.'

Senator Jeff Baron was on hand to congratulate the winners at a small ceremony yesterday.

“As the Post Office embarked on its journey to be a more innovative, customer focused and sustainable postal service, we recognised that reaching out to students would be essential to communicate its message the BPO was striving to evolve into a modern, electronic friendly service,” he said.

The competition was open to all students and was part of the BPO's School Awareness Programme. The aim of the programme was to “engage students in a holistic discussion about the role and history of the BPO, build greater awareness among students of how the mail system works and help students to improve their communication skills.”

“We were delighted that principals from both Government and private schools agreed to support our Schools Awareness Programme, the centrepiece of which was the essay competition,” said Mr Baron.

“We know that students will benefit greatly from improving their writing skills, a key component in developing effective communication skills.”

Winners: Senator Baron along with the Post Master General (Retired) Allan Wayne Smith, E.D., Digicel Bermuda Corporate Business Relationship Manager Tammy Gibbons, CellOne Bermuda Marketing Director Joel Ferrier, The Complete Office Director of Corporate Sales Allison Ince and the winners of the essay competition.
