St. Maarten Academy PSVE Creates History with Accelerated Class | SOUALIGA NEWSDAY

SINT MAARTEN (ST. PETERS) – The St. Maarten Academy PSVE created history, last week, when it received notice that two of its students from the CCSLC Pilot Program, who sat the CXC examination in August 2020, were awarded regional top performer’s places for CCSLC Mathematics.

The School Board, the Foundation for Academic and Vocational Education (FAVE), through its Chair Mr. Roland Duncan, Esq., and Management through the school’s Principal Mrs. Lavern A. Nelson join with staff and students in congratulating Santa Confinante Jimenez and Calvin Lumaine, who were recognized as Regional Top Performers in Mathematics at CXC’s CCSLC level. 

“Kudos to the village who made this achievement possible: Santa and Calvin for making the school standout regionally, our Math teachers, Student Care Coordinator, Mentors, Parents and Guardians, FAVE, the Ministry of Education, Culture, Youth and Sport, God and everyone who played a part, large or small.  Thank you for your role in this feat!” The Principal said.   

These students were part of the CCSLC Pilot at the St. Maarten Academy PSVE, which started on January 8, 2018, when they were in Form 2, using an accelerated class model.  The CCSLC subjects in the pilot program were Mathematics and English, whereby their CXC Certificate was to serve as a ‘top up’ to their PSVE Qualifications. 

Mrs. Nelson thanked the entire pioneering accelerated class for rising above obstacles and overcoming great challenges to achieve their 100% pass rate at the first sitting of Mathematics and English at the CXC examinations in August 2020: Kemar Brooks, Oceandre Clarke, Santa Confinante Jimenez, Jeremiah Flanders, Harry Goguette, Jade Gordon, Jordani Labady, Calvin Lumaine, Jeremy Page, Jervons Rogers, Abigail Stevens, Adrian Vaerie, and Tyreke Woodstock.  She said that since the CXC results came out after their PSVE Program graduation, the former students will receive their certificates in the school leaving exercises for the 2021 school year, planned for June 29 2021.
