ROAD TOWN, Tortola, VI - Being the largest primary school in the Territory, the Principal of the Althea Scatliffe Primary School (ASPS), commended her teachers, giving them praises for creating a ‘culture of excellence’ within the school over the years.

Principal Marietta Headley, while addressing students, parents and friends on July 4, 2012 at the Sir Rupert Briercliffe Hall at the 2012 graduation exercise, she stated that with such successful and dedicated teachers employed at the school, no child is left behind.

“Teachers of the Althea Scatliffe Primary School have worked very hard to see positive end results. Staying late after school and coming in on Saturdays, they are dedicated in seeing the success of the school and its students.”

She added that their hard work has being very evident. “The challenges we faced made us stronger.”

In light of all the devoted time that is put into the students, Ms. Headley stated that every year at the Elmore Stoutt High School, at least the Valedictorian or the Salutatorian attended the ASPS.

“The proof is in the pudding,” she said.

She said that Althea Scatliffe provides half of the graduating class for the public high school and extended congrats to this year’s salutatorian, Jason Williams Jr., who attended ASPS.

“Virgins Islands best always hail from the Althea Scatliffe Primary School.”

Ms. Headley stated that the ASPS staff is committed to producing the finest individuals that will continue to contribute to the development of the economy, by any means necessary.

Out of a total of 94 graduates of the school this year, 34 students were awarded Grade 1 certificates, leaving 60 students receiving Grade 2 certificates.

The Salutatorian of ASPS was Deondra Frett, who also placed 2nd in Science in the Territory and earned a spot in the Territorial Top Twenty Students at number 15.

Valedictorian was Davindra O’Neal. As a result of Davindra’s Primary 5 exams, he placed 1st in Social Studies, 2nd in science in the territory and holds the 10th spot in the Territorial Top Twenty students.

Althea Scatliffe Primary School graduated two other students this year who were enlisted in the Territorial Top Twenty Students, they are Samuel Anthony #16 and Turryl Richards #20.

    60 grade 2 certificates out of 94 tells the whole story... there's lots of room for improvement! Is it the students or is it the teachers?

    I am a former teacher of ASPS. The blood and spirit of the MIGHTY MIGHTY SCATLIFFE runs in my veins. The success of the students excites me. I feel good about every GLORY AND PRAISE that the school receives. The principal is a dear friend of mine too. Hon. Walwyn is my boss. He is also her boss. I just hope that they both show respect for each other. The minister and principal have their respective roles to play. The bloggers are doing a dangerous job at comparing the two. Also, I will not encourage the principal to dare her supervisor. God ordained leadership and we should walk in God's strides. The minister has my respect and support. Our wishes are not that of God. No matter how we wish some one bad, God will do what He wants, when He wants and how He wants. He makes the difference!
