ROAD TOWN, Tortola, VI - Students of the St George’s Primary School have again done the school proud at the National Primary Five Examinations, claiming the top three spots for the Territory. Six of the students also feature in the top twenty.

Despite the fact that the school had six students in the top ten in 2012, Principal Ms Claudette A. Llandover said that the overall performance this year was better.

Take the top three positions for the Territory were Shakima Fagan, Sean Wong and Jada Angus respectively.

The other three who made it in the top 20 from St Georges Primary were Aria Creque (6th), Kaiandre Clarke (15th) and Levana Barry (18th).

It was freaky Friday at the St George’s Primary yesterday June 21, 2013 when this news site visited the school. At the time, only two of the top three students were present; Shakima Fagan and Jada Angus. Both said while they worked for nothing but the best and were expecting to come out with good grades, they were still shocked when it did happen for them.

Shakima said her mom would always speak of her competitive spirit and because of the confidence they had in her she was keen on doing her best to make her parents and herself proud.

She was high in praise of the teachers and principal who she said exhibited a high level of dedication to their work and because they wanted all the students to perform at their best, they went the extra mile. The very sentiments were express by the principal.

Shakima is hoping she would have the opportunity to carry on the name of St George’s by being able to attend the secondary level of the school. This smart young lady said she has her eyes on becoming an educator or pursuing a career in the Arts. "I am somewhat leaning to the Arts as I love music. I play the guitar and I love drawing. Drawing the human eye is my favourite piece.”

Jada Angus said she is more than likely to be heading to the Elmore Stoutt High School where she is hoping to pursue studies that will guide her towards a medical profession.

Thirty six students from St George’s Primary wrote the Primary Five Examinations this year of which 21 received Grade Ones and 9 achieved Grade Twos. "We put in a lot of work with our students this year and we knew that we were going to get great results…Our students have no choice, here they have to embrace learning," Ms Llandover said.

She said that at the beginning of the school year there were students who were very weak and because of the devised strategies implemented they all were taken from the lower average to the upper averages. "We had students who were really weak and today some of them are in the top 20 for the Territory," noted Ms. Llandover.

The head teacher added that the students' also did the school proud in the individual subject areas. In Language Arts, the school got the 1st, 2nd, 5th 10th, 12th, 14th and 16th places for the entire Territory. For Mathematics, the 2nd, 4th, 8th, 12th and 15th positions belonged to St George’s Primary School. Social Studies, saw the school taking the 3rd, 4th, 6th, 8th, 10th, 11th, 14th and 17 positions and for Science they claimed the 1st, 2nd, 6th, 15th, 16th and 18th positions.

    Do the maths BVI, St. George's is one of the few Christian-based primary schools. All our schools used to be that way, until the Government started bit by bit taking God out of the education system.
