The school, in a release said the 2021/ 2022 cohort of students was “arguably the lot which was most affected by the COVID-19 pandemic and the explosion of …La Soufriere volcano.
“Despite the challenges, the staff and students managed to achieve a pass rate of 80.95 per cent at the May/June CSEC exams sitting.”
The school had the fifth highest pass rate in St Vincent and the Grenadines for 2022.
