The school achieved an overall pass rate of 77 per cent this year, up from the 75 per cent last year.

The school’s most outstanding performer was Rhonique Morgan, who created history for the school when she returned eleven grade ones with eight distinctions in the examination.

Another student, Kaedrene Pierre, was also outstanding, passing nine of the 10 subjects she wrote.

Principal of the school Anthony Ollivierre told SEARCHLIGHT that the school achieved 100 per cent pass rates in Agricultural Science, Information Technology, Electronic Document Processing Management, Office Administration and Food and Nutrition, with 90 per cent passes in English A.

Ollivierre said, taking everything into consideration, he is pleased with the school’s performance, but looking forward to improvement. He is especially pleased with the improvement in the quality of the grades obtained by his students.

“No one left without any subjects,” he said.

Ollivierre is also satisfied that the school has maintained its ranking among secondary schools, in relation to results of the CSEC exam. The school ranked sixth (76.67%) in this year’s exam. They entered 37 students in 15 subject areas.

“We have done this despite the fact that we have been working under conditions which were not the best,” Ollivierre said.

The school is undergoing major renovations, with the building of two new science laboratories, a computer laboratory, a library and resource centre, a home economics centre and new staff room facilities.

Ollivierre said the noise and dust associated with construction affected the quality of instruction.
