Over the past weekend, 2,033 students living in the Sembawang constituency received Edusave awards - a record number for the division.

The increase is due to more of the awards being given out at the constituency levels instead of at the schools.

In total, five types of awards were given out. The Edusave Merit Bursary, Edusave Scholarship (ES), Good Progress Award (GPA), Edusave Awards for Achievement, Good Leadership & Service (Eagles) and the Edusave Character Award (Echa).

Each recipient receives a one-time amount of $100 to $500 depending on award type and school level.
