The Changing of the Guards


On Friday 02nd October 2009, the new prefect body for the 2009-2010 academic year, was installed in a brief ceremony held in the school’s auditorium. The students were first addressed by Mrs. Debra East, Dean of the Sixth form class, who thanked the entire prefect body for their service and commitment to school life. The lower six class took their positions on stage as they were presented with their badges by Mrs. East and Ms. Saundra-Lynn Hamid, coordinators of the prefecting system. The students were then invited to pin on their new badges after first repeating the prefect pledge. Mrs. East sincerely thanked the existing student leadership for their maturity and for their participation in the democratic process of electing the new leadership.

The school population was also introduced to its new student leaders as the Head Girl and her Assistant were installed. Miss Renee Charles, the new Head Girl and Miss Darlene Auguste, Deputy Head Girl, were presented with their badges by Principal, Mrs. Dinna Bainey. In their inaugural speech, both young ladies articulated their commitment and continued service to the institution. They were gracious in their acceptance, thanking the school community for its support and for privilege of the office they now hold. They asked for the continued collaboration of their colleagues and members of staff as they sought to execute the responsibilities of their new office. ', '

We wish these young women as well as the newly installed prefect body, a successful and committed academic year.

Surprise Visit!



sister_phyllis_wharfeSister Phyllis Wharfe, former Principal, made an unexpected and much appreciated visit last Monday. Her informal visit was a welcome treat for the members of staff and students who have benefited enormously from her tenure. Though she did not intend to speak initially, she was introduced to the student population and was enthusiastically received by the senior students who have fond memories of her leadership.

Sister Phyllis challenged the students to continue to strive for excellence in all of their pursuits. A true connoisseur of language, Sister Phyllis quickly mesmerised the students in her short talk, urging that they seek out true beauty that fills hearts, hold steadfast to the tenets of honesty and integrity, and above all, be of service to ensure the salvation of our beloved country. She also reminded students that it is essential for them to have lofty goals, and of the privilege that was theirs to attend a prestige institution such as ours. Their role, she said, as future graduates and ambassadors, was in the setting and raising of standards to which others could aspire. ', '

At present, Sister Phyllis is at work in Tobago, earnestly spearheading the establishment of a retreat centre. Her latest undertaking in this regard, is a Past Students Thru the Ages Can Cook Too! event which takes place on Saturday 24th October, 2009 at the Green Meadows Estate. Tickets are priced at $150.00. For further information, please contact Mrs. L. Archie or Ms. A. Sumadh at 652-3301.
