(CMR) The Department of Education Services (DES) has announced that students from the Lighthouse School (LHS) have sat and passed the Level 1 City & Guilds examinations for the sixth consecutive year.
Eight students, Davon Hurlston, Rasheed Lawrence, Zoe Puthillath, Marcus Smith, Jamaal Dubrey, Tahjay Bush, Adante Ross and Samuel Henry, sat and passed Mathematics or English (Reading and Writing) in June. They collectively achieved a total of four distinctions, four merits and a pass.
DES Director Mr. Mark Ray commended the students on their excellent results.
“I would like to congratulate each student, their parents, and teachers on this remarkable achievement and look forward to the students’ continued success in their future endeavors.”
Acting LHS Principal Ms. Janice Headley added, “The road to the students' success was not easy. Each child worked diligently through blended learning at different points in the school year, under the guidance of their teacher, Ms. Jenny Garratt, support staff Mrs. Judith Kimote and Mr. Jacy Elliott, and with the support of several educational stakeholders.”
Ms. Headley also thanked parents for their commitment and encouragement throughout the process.
Two of the eight students are currently enrolled at Cayman Islands Further Education Centre (CIFEC). One student has transitioned to a vocational college in London, and the remaining students are still enrolled at The Lighthouse School, preparing to sit their additional examinations and transition to CIFEC in the upcoming academic year.
