Press Release

Laveda Liverpool of Giraudel is the new addition to NBD’s scholarship programme. This academic year, NBD has sponsored eleven students from secondary schools across the island. The scholarship covers all essential school expenses.

The students met with officials of the Bank at a motivational session at the beginning of the school year. Staff of the NBD engaged the students in discussions on various relevant topics including “Being a Leader Amongst Your Peers”, “Your Choices Matter” and “Money Management Tips”. Ms. Lilian Polydore, Executive Manager Human Resource at NBD encouraged the students to remain focused and hoped that the motivational session would help the students to broaden their perspectives and make responsible decisions about their future.

According to Ms. Polydore, “The aim of NBD’s scholarship programme is to invest in these young people for future sustainable development. It is important to us to contribute to their growth, not only through financial assistance but by instilling positive values in them”.

Mother of Laveda Liverpool, Clara Charles expressed immense gratitude to the Bank on behalf of the students. Laveda began her new chapter at the Convent High School this September.

NBD extends best wishes to all students for this school year.
