The Ministry of Education congratulates all students and extends gratitude to the
Principals, teachers and staff at all schools for their support of the students. We are
cognizant of the fact that outcomes in education are measured, not only in
quantitative terms, but also in qualitative terms; therefore, the value added to the
lives of all of the students, the top performers as well as those whose performance
can be improved, is greatly appreciated.
All Principals continue to work diligently in conjunction with the Ministry of
Education in support of their schools’ effectiveness and the students’ success.
