The Graduates

The St. Augustine Primary School celebrated their annual graduation Ceremony on July12, 2010. The new Roman Catholic St. Patrick’s church was left with standing room only as the function was well attended by parents, guardians and supporters of the School.

119 pupils (80% of the school population) received certificates, having achieved at least a 70% average for this school year.    The year’s average was 81%. Listen to the principal outline the performances:Principal give an outline the student’s performances

The Principal and Valedictorian give their Speech

Miss Ann Marie Dewar, principal of the school delivered the annual report. She stated that the school year commenced with an enrollment of 150 pupils and ended with 151 pupils on roll: 84 boys and 67 girls.

Miss Dewar commented on the performance. “This is a very creditable performance indeed.”

She continued: Principal give an outline on Grade Six Placement Tests

In the Grade Six Placement Tests, the pupils have once again performed well, the principal reported. The Placement test administered by the Ministry of Education, accounted for 60% of the final assessment, and the internal school assessment made up 40 % of the final assessment.  Based on their performance, 25 of the 27 pupils graduating. “will enter the Secondary school in graded sets according to their proficiency in numeracy and literacy.  Two pupils will require some remediation in order to competently access the full curriculum,” she reported adding that “pupils who performed particularly well in the overall Grade 6 placement test are, Jaemal Fergus, and Carlisle Vuyphuis.”

Attorney at Law, Warren Cassel delivered the feature address in which he spoke mostly directly to the graduants. “I came up with 7 things I wish I was told at my primary school graduation. Had I known those seven (7) things then I would have a more successful Secondary School,” he began.

These were: Get a Goal and write it down: Be Passionate!: Surround yourself with positive Friends: Learn From your Mistakes: Pray: Use positive words ALL the time: and Read:

The lawyer emphasised: “I want to remind all of you that whatever you said you want to become, you can, and will become provided that you remain focused.  Whether you were born Montserratian or you are from Guyana, Jamaica or Africa success is yours, but you must want it for yourself,”  he encouraged.

He further challenged and stressed the habit of reaching as he told them: “…read daily and aim for success in all that you do. If you want to set yourself apart from all the other students at the other primary schools, read all the time…”  St Aug graduation feature speaker Warren Cassell

Miss Habibata Kassim received valedictorian honour of the graduating class 2009/2010. She delivered a brief speech and said: “as I adjusted I made new friends and I found that the principal and all the teachers at St. Augustine were caring, loving and the level of discipline is very high when compared to my former school…”

Certificate being handed out to students

She complimented and thanked, “my class teacher, Teacher Evelyn,” thanking also her parents especially my father, (Dr. Kassim) who “checked almost every day with my teacher to ensure I did what I was supposed to do… I will practice the values I have learned at St. Augustine…I will live up to the high reputation of St. Augustine Roman Catholic School.”
