Following is the full statement:
The People’s Progressive Party (PPP) congratulates all those students who excelled at the recent Caribbean Secondary Examination (CSEC) and the Caribbean Advanced Proficiency Examination (CAPE).
Special congratulations are extended to those who topped at both levels of the examination. In the case of the CSEC examination congratulations are in order for Fatima Karim from St. Rose’s High School who topped the list with passes in twenty subjects including nineteen distinctions and one credit. Other high performers included Kayshav Tewari and Aadilah Ali from Queen’s College, Ramkumarie Ramdass from the Saraswati Vidya Niketan and Sariah Singh from Queens College; all of whom secured passes in eighteen subjects and more.
At the Caribbean Advanced Proficiency level, congratulations are extended Deenauth Mohabir from Queen’s College who topped with passes in seven subjects. Other top students include Larissa Wiltshire, Ashley Anthony, Carissa Kisson, Shannon Woodroffe, Joash Gobin and Steffan Ageda all of whom secured passes in six subjects at Grade One.
The PPP while taking note of those students who performed exceptionally wishes to place on record the overall decline in several other subject areas including the important subject of Mathematics which showed a significant dip in student performance.
The Party is worried that the enhanced delivery of quality education under the PPP/C administration is under threat of being eroded and unless this trend is arrested the country could once again see itself placed at the bottom of the performance latter as happened under the previous PNC regime.
The PPP calls on the Granger administration to ensure that the necessary resources are put into the education sector in order to avoid further slippages in the delivery of quality education.
