The College focusses on supporting Guyana’s youth to become well-rounded citizens with a strong

has a right to the opportunity to succeed. The programme rests on the principle of giving each
student a strong foundation in the core elements of a rounded education and is geared towards
providing students with the knowledge, skills and competencies to pursue further education in a
range of disciplines and with the ability to make positive contributions to the sustainable
development to Guyana.
“We have done it again,” said Saints Principal Fazia Baksh. “with the dedicated and hard-working
staff, and the commitment of parents, the Board, the Alumni Associations, and especially the
children, we have incomparable results. I’m particularly pleased that we obtained a 100% pass rate
in Maths, where the national and regional average was below 50%. We want to recognize the
highflyers, and we want to recognize the performance of the entire cohort of students. It speaks to
our commitment to the Team.”
Saints also had a stellar year at the CAPE Examination, with Grades 1-3 pass rate average of 98%, in
nine subjects, including 100% passes in Biology, Caribbean Studies, Environmental Science,

Administration wish to congratulate the students, parents and teachers for their outstanding
achievement and looks forward to their commitment to even more success.
And Saints goes marching on.
