In another sign that the football Academy has begun well, those interns who were studying in Std X at the Fr. Agnel High School, Pilar, have passed the SSC March 2019 examination honourably!
Of the seven boys, Alrico Cardoso won Distinction with a pass percentage of 83%, and Laston Barreto passed with a First Class score of 61%!
The other five students discharged their responsibilities successfully as follows:-
- Vinay Harji 54%
- Velanco Rodrigues 51%
- Necio Fernandes 47%
- Vieri Colaco 45%
- Jimmy Colaco 44%
This performance came in the course of days which covered school-going, football practice, special coaching and motivational talk sessions.
Full credit for the success goes to the boys, their school, their Assistant Coach & Hostel Warden Vaman R. Chari, and, in a key way, their special tuition teacher, Ms. Rekha D’Silva. Apart from these, the cooks, assistants, football coaches, Management Staff, Technical Director Karnagaran Naidoo and attendants, as also the Club Management, all combined to craft an atmosphere at the Academy focussed on learning – at school and on the field! More than anyone else, Mr. Menino and Mrs. Lancia Cardoso, the parents of the Academy’s topper, Alric Cardoso, are proud and pleased at the academic and sporting progress of their son!
All at DEMPO proudly congratulate the boys and wish that this feat is the first of many more!
