(CNS Local Life): Six students at the Lighthouse School have sat and passed the Level 1 City and Guild examinations. Ashaunti Bodden, Cruz Evans, Shakia Scott, Trina Greenidge, Callum O’Brien and Dayan Powery each sat English (Reading and Writing) and Mathematics on 18 June 2019, and collectively achieved a total of five merits and two distinctions.

Five of the six students are currently enrolled in the further education programme at the Cayman Islands Further Education Centre (CIFEC).

A release from the school said that the road to the students’ success was not an easy one and each child worked diligently under the guidance of their teacher, Jenny Garratt, aided by support staff Phillippa Miller and Jacy Elliott and through the support of several educational stakeholders to get to this point.

“The crucial support provided by the Department of Education Services the Ministry of Education, as well as the ongoing close and collaborative relationship with CIFEC has allowed the smooth and successful transition of our students to this further level in their educational journeys,” said Lighthouse School Acting Principal Janice Headley-Thorpe.

At an award ceremony in honour of the students, held at the Lighthouse School last month, Temporary Minister of Education David Wight commended the students for their success.

“I wholeheartedly congratulate each of you for your bravery, discipline, determination and your accomplishment,” he said.  “I challenge your peers to see your success as an example that is worthy of emulation so that they too can someday experience the pride and satisfaction that you must now feel.”
