Debnath, Wood cop top awards


The ooh’s and aah’s from the audience made it appear as if Programme Officer Jo-Anne Lyttle-Scrubb was reading exquisite dishes from the menu of a top restaurant in St. Vincent and the Grenadines.

But no, it was the accomplishments of the top local performers in the 2006 CXC/CSEC exams.{{more}}

Top male performer Javal Wood, a former student of the St. Vincent Grammar School, gained 10 passes with seven grade ones in English A, Mathematics, Biology Physics, Principles of Accounts, Information Technology and Spanish. He received grade twos in English B, Geography and Chemistry.

Wood sat the common entrance examination in 2001 and placed first for boys and first overall, which earned him entry into the St. Vincent Grammar School. While there he maintained an average of 80%. He almost exclusively maintained first position in every form during the years 2001 to 2006. He was also a member of the school’s French and Literary clubs and the Debating Society.

Debnath had tied with Wood in the 2001 Common Entrance exams but five years later moved a step ahead of him in the CXC/CSEC Examinations.

Her performance came as no surprise to teachers and fellow students, since she had maintained averages of 80’s and 90’s while a student at the Girls’ High School, barely slipping below 80% a mere three times.

She gained nine grade one passes with multiple distinctions in every subject: Biology, Caribbean History, English A, English B, French, Mathematics, Physics, Spanish and Information Technology. She gained grade twos in Chemistry and Geography.

Debnath is also a student at the St. Vincent Community College.

She gave the vote of thanks at the 2007 National Awards Ceremony, where she thanked her teachers and class mates as well as her parents for their support, help and advice.

Debnath says she intends to continue performing to her best and promises top quality performances.
