The St. Vincent Grammar School continues to underline their dominance in cricket at the St. Vincent Teachers Co-operative Credit Union Under-15 Cricket Competition.
For the third consecutive year, the school has played unbeaten. The only loss recorded by the Grammar School was in the final in the inaugural year, when they were beaten by the St. Martin’s Secondary.{{more}}
