The Eurasian Community Education Fund (ECF) Awards ceremony, an annual keynote event which recognises Eurasian students’ achievements, hosted more than 250 students. At the ceremony, where Mr S Iswaran, Minister for Trade and Industry, was guest of honour, the students received cash for books and transport, and grants to cover school fees were also given to disadvantaged students. Two new awards were also introduced: the Irene Joseph Memorial Award and the Parameswara Krishna Pillai (PKP) Nair Memorial Award, which were set up by their respective families to honour the role they played in encouraging and supporting younger family members in their education.
