Anse Boileau primary unveils Hall of Fame |11 April 2023
- Best students are recognised
The Anse Boileau primary school became the latest primary school to unveil its Hall of Fame in a ceremony last Thursday, April 6, honouring the 2022 Primary 6 students who performed exceptionally well in their Primary 6 National Exam.
In a short ceremony at the school’s premises, a group of 13 pupils, currently studying in secondary school, received their awards for obtaining grades A* to C, and scoring between 60% and 100% for all six academic subjects in the P6 National Examination.
Awards were presented to two students with the highest marks for the six academic subjects. The top scorer from Anse Boileau primary school for English, French, creole, mathematics and social studies was Estelle Anacoura who in fact scored 100% for mathematics, while Luyando Shandele was the top scorer for science.
The three best overall performers were Estelle Anacoura in first place, followed by Liam Antat in second position and Alikah Cupidon in third place.
When addressing the students and the guests, the school’s headteacher, Sultane Jacqueline, expressed her profound joy in the accomplishment of her former students.
“We are all gathered here today with due regards to the hard work, commitments, and determination in your studies to achieve your academic personal best. The extra effort you invested diligently in your six years of primary school’s ‘parcours’ that produced this end results that makes you shine above everyone else. My message to you is to uphold the high standard you have set for yourself in your secondary education and beyond,” she said.
Speaking to the media, the overall best performer, Estelle Anacoura said she was very happy as all her hard work throughout the years had paid off.
“I am happy; I was always studying to achieve the best results and it has happened. If I am not studying, most of the time you will see me reading a book, which is my favourite pastime,” she said. Estelle said her next goal is to study hard for IGCSE which is in a few years’ time.
For his part, Estelle’s father, Edwards Anacoura, said just like any parent, he is very proud of her daughter. “During my days in school, I have never come even close to that kind of result and to see that she has achieved it makes me so proud,” he said.
The ceremony at the school’s premises was held in the presence of elected member of the National Assembly for Anse Boileau, Hon. Phillip Arissol, the director general for Institutional Support Services, Bernard Arnephy and members of the Anse Boileau school council.
The Hall of Fame programme is a project aimed at encouraging students to perform with excellence.
