Achievement Day at Curepe Fatima

The Curepe Fatima RC School held its Achievement Day on Wednesday, June 28. Pupils from each class were recognised for their efforts in Mathematics, English, Language Arts, Writing, service and perseverance.

The Standard 5 pupils were given special recognition as they will be moving on to secondary school in September.

The Principal, Alicia Clasp Gooding, highlighted the difficulties faced by both pupils and teachers, as the school is presently short-staffed.

Despite this, over the last school year, students were exposed to and enjoyed:

  • A Christmas concert
  • Carnival celebrations at school and at the Queen’s Park Savannah
  • Carvalho and Crazy Catholic Productions at Queen’s Hall
  • Marian Devotions
  • Weekly Mass
  • A Sports Day
  • Spelling B Competition (Spellbound on CNC 3)
  • Swimming competitions at Centre of Excellence
  • A Lenten Retreat.

With a staff of 12 teachers, the principal has ensured a holistic curriculum is delivered to all children.
