Recipe for success

A COMMITTED staff, supportive parents and God are the ingredients for the continuous success of Grant Memorial Presbyterian Pri­mary School in San Fernando.

Principal Monica Baksh said yesterday they were all feeling “on top of world” after getting the results from the Secondary Entrance Assessment (SEA) on Wednesday. Of the 150 pupils who wrote the exam, 85 per cent passed for their first choice.

Pupil Cameel Juman placed second in the country. Last year, pupil Sandh­ya Sookhoo placed first.

Baksh said: “I have a com­mitted staff; they are really committed to giving the best, their all, and the parent body is very supportive. And, of course, we thank God each day because we have our full worship session every morning. I believe the combination of those three things is a real recipe of success.”

She said over 20 pupils passed for Naparima College and Naparima Girls’ High School, and 16 will be attending St Joseph’s Convent in September.

Baksh said the school has not yet received the official listing from the Ministry of Education but was told of their success.

She said the school was anxiously waiting to find out which pupils placed in the top 200.
