The 14 graduates from the St. Augustine Primary School have been urged to strive for excellence and grasp the opportunities on life’s journey. That’s the message from the school’s Principal Ann-Marie Dewar during the graduation ceremony on Thursday at the St. Patrick’s Catholic Church.
During the Principal’s report, Ms. Dewar recalled the accomplishments of the school and students and the activities they undertook during the past academic year.
Of significance is the early indications that the St. Augustine School surpassed the national average in both Language Arts and Mathematics at both the grade 3 and 5 levels in the National Attainment Tests.
Ms. Dewar was also pleased with the performance of grade six students who sat the Montserrat Secondary School’s placement test in language arts and mathematics in June this year.
She revealed that 50% of the graduates are placed in set 1 for both English and Mathematics at the MSS.
Meanwhile…Student of the year Khyra West encouraged her fellow graduates to work much harder at the Montserrat Secondary School to be successful because as she puts it ‘life at MSS will be more challenging than St. Augustine’.
